Does flex_select freeze for the other tables in this catalog?

Can you install a fresh foundation on the same server you are having this
problem, and copy the table to that and see if it works? If it does not,
then I'd try first replacing the relevant pages in lib/UI/pages/admin
(possibly flex_select). Weird things can happen for whatever reason.

If it still does not, obviously it is likely your perl or mysql version and
out of my technical expertise.

However, on a large table, set it as so in catalog.cfg:

Database mytablename LARGE 1

Interchange will only show you input boxes to search it, instead of
returning all records. It may work and you can leave it at that.
