I just upgraded to 2.9.1 and now whenever I try to empty spam or empty trash, it takes forever. I only had 50 comments in the spam folder and it took over 15 seconds.
When I tried to empty the trash, it took 20 seconds and then went to a completely white (blank) screen! When I reloaded the admin panel, only half the items in the trash were emptied.
I'm running on a dedicated server with 6 GB of RAM and never had any issues before 2.9.1, so I am pretty sure it's a problem with the WordPress code.
Anyone else seeing this problem!?
