How does WebParser behave when it's stuck?

Hello,
I know that sometimes WebParser will get stuck and you'll have to restart Rainmeter. I'd like to know whether it gets stuck only with parsing a URL, or even if it's parsing a local file or a measure.

-Thanks in advance.

The only time I have seen WebParser.dll get hung is when you repeatedly, and in short order, ask it to go out and retrieve data (source is not important) before it has a chance to finish getting and parsing the previous request(s).

When I see it most often is when designing / debugging a skin, and you hammer refresh to test some change to the skin.
