Description Peter Hultqvist 2013-07-17 02:52:07 UTC
If several instances are trying to access the news cache file at the same time a file access error will occur.

An error is shown in one of the instances.
If I recall correctly the one with the error is also shut down right after.

This bug is rarely occurring. This time it happened at the start of the day when the news cache was old.

The news cache issue is now caught in the code. Marking as fixed.
