Intermittent hard to reproduce bug, but has happened several times in the last couple of days when pressing search button so worth a mention:
Screen freezes with focus/shadow effect, nothing selectable. Only darker version of page visible.
?DHTML browser compatibility... Running IE 7.0.5730.11
Network connection OK and other IE7 tabs in same browser still responding.
Ahh the joys of a Flex framework... ;-)
PS apparently there is a compilation route from AJAX to APOLLO to get sites into a desktop / kiosk application...

I get the same quite often (screen freeze in shadow effect), usually when selecting year as filter on existing search.
Think the shadow effect can be confusing at least add animated icon to show its thinking.

the ajax hanging is an issue - its not one issue but a bunch of similar bugs, we're fixing each as we find them. if you have any detail on what causes it let us know.
As for the "thinking icon", we're adding that in the next few days, it should make the experience less confusing to the new user.

I believe I've been able to fix the screen hang, but please let me know if you notice it again. I was able to reproduce the bug, made a strategic change, and then I wasn't able to reproduce it.
For this type of bug, that's not good enough for me to call it definitively fixed so keep me posted.
