Admin panel keeps loading when Authentic Theme is active and server overloads

Hello, I faced today an odd problem. When i tried to login to my server via Webmin interface, i saw that my browser kept loading loading loading...and not stopped until i press ESC. I have tried it from 3 different PC's from 3 different networks and the problem is the same. It just keep loading. I logged in via ssh and checked the server loading and it seems it's near 100% as you can see at the printscreen attached. When i changed to the old theme, everything works perfectly. I don't know what's going on, since i have deleted the authentic-theme and re-installed it and the problem persists. Hope someone can help me on resolving this issue. Also, I should note that every package on the server is updated. I'm Using centos 5 and php 5.5.3 Thanks to everyone ;-)

Howdy -- hmm, are you seeing any errors or warnings in the Webmin log, located at /var/webmin/miniserv.error?

Hello again, I just saw that on theme settings, in every input area, before everything else are shown/inserted automatically characters like ' . Every time i tried to delete them and save, they re-appear. And, every time i enter to theme settings page, one of those ' is inserted. When they became 3 or 4 ' then the servers overloads and the problem appears. Would anyone help me on resolving this issue, please? Thank you!

@andreychek: Thanks for your reply. No errors appears!

It looks like either you missedited your /etc/webmin/authentic-theme/settings.js - delete it manually.

Another thought, is the theme's settings regex incompatibility with your (old) version of Perl. It needs to be double checked.

I would recommend upgrading to CentOS 7, as version 5 has almost reached it's 'end of life'. I also never encountered it in CentOS 6.

@Ilia : Thank you for your reply and suggestion. I deleted it manually and it clears up all thos ' but, when i enter to the settinmgs page of the Authentic Theme, make any modification and save it, immediately appear those ' . As many time i push the save button, the more ' appears. I have another server with the same configurations and don't have any issue like this :-( Anyway, if I can't resolve this issue, probably i will upgrade centos from 5 to 6 or 7. Thank you!

CentOS 5 is not a problem. If there are issues with Authentic on the standard Perl version in CentOS 5, we'll fix it! We will support CentOS 5 until it reaches EOL in March 2017.

Ilia, are you aware of Perl issues with Authentic on CentOS 5? Let me know what they are, and I'll help you get them resolved.

@Joe Not any of those I would be aware. We need to try to reproduce it on CentOS 5 machine and check for regex I think.

@Kleidi What if you click escape key to dismiss the right page loader? What is the error there? Do you have any?

@Ilia: No error appears on ESC. That's the problem :-( Anyway, now i can't reproduce it anymore since i have upgraded to centos 7.1 and seems that is working. Because of that error, i have done the upgrade that i was delaying for some time :-)
Anyway, i have another server with the same configuration, Centos 5 i mean. It's working great until now, but if the error will appear on it too, i'll let you know and help you and others to understand the problem and resolve it.
Thanks to everyone for trying to help me!
