Unresponsive Script Error with Custom Fields in WP 2.5 RC1 and WP 2.5

Reported by: arickrol Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: high
Severity: blocker Version: 2.5
Component: Administration Keywords: custom fields, unresponsive script
Focuses: Cc:


When trying to write a new post the browser (Firefox in my case) throws an Unresponsive Script Error. I believe it to be due to custom fields. I have to click the Stop Script button in order to see what the fields are. I looked at mine and there appears to be many duplicates. Several of the custom fields seem to have 4 copies of each.

I don't know the exact cause, or a fix, but this always happens when trying to write a new post regardless of the browser. I tried to delete the duplicate custom fields but it doesn't work, perhaps because of stopping the script.

This prevents me from writing new posts.

Using Safari I was able to get in. Safari throws a slow script error (but it is more tolerant than Firefox). So, below find all the keys and their corresponding values (these are specific to my blog). Maybe we can find something in there.

This happens on my WP 2.5 and 2.6-bleeding from today, too... When I go to "Write", the whole page just locks up due to a huge ammount of custom fields listed.

Here's the screenshot from the source: http://shrani.si/?33/OP/4rRai7o5/screenshot76.jpg

I'm not using any special plugins or admin panel additions...

By the way... (and sorry for triple posting - I can't find the Edit link anywhere :() - I have kinda solved the problem by emptying the proper database tables and doing a XML import in WP's Admin panel.
