[phenixbb] phenix gui freezes

Same problem here with Ubuntu 8.04 and Ubuntu 9.10

Not sure whether it is linked to anything, but leaving the GUI open
while a job is running, usually means I have to kill and restart the
GUI because it is frozen. I only run the GUI locally.

I have not been able to work out why this happens. It only affects
Phenix, and it does not cause anything else to crash at the same time.
