            Interface is great but the app is slow and unstable
            I simply canot close it normally ..

            I keep using kill -9 ...

            not to mention that on startup it eats a 100% of my cpu

            I have to kvm to another box while is downloading binary posts just to browse the net

            (duron 950 ,650 MB ram, fluxbox on slackware current)

            The only reason to use it is becouse there's nothing better out there

            nice job
            I've switched from Knode to Pan 0.14.2, and am pretty happy. Actually, I thought Knode rocked in general, so the fact that I prefer Pan is high praise for Pan. The only problem I've experienced is that the killfile mechanism is broken, but AFAICT from surfing the project's web page, that bug has been fixed in the latest beta version.

            Pan pops up the new user dialog whenever it can't find
            any identities in the profiles.xml file, typically in the
            ~/.pan directory. Do you have a file ~/.pan/profiles.xml?

            This is an awkward forum to track bugs; please file
            a bugzilla report via http://pan.rebelbase.com/bugs/
            and we'll continue this there.

            Pan 0.11.94
            I've been using Pan pretty much since the project
            began. After I upgraded to 0.11.94 it started up with
            the settings wizard asking me for all the servers
            again.

            Figuring there had been a change in the format, I
            shrugged and filled it in. Everything worked as
            before.

            When I started it the next time, it asked for my info
            AGAIN! It seems to ignore the server settings every
            time it starts. Any help?
