Umbraco – Saving Document Type causes freeze, hang or timeout

For me, Umbraco will frequently hang, freeze or timeout when I try to save edits I have made to a Document Type.  Luckily, there is a workaround.  Instead of making your edits via the GUI, use the Export/Import Document Type instead.

Step 1 – Export the Document Type you want to edit.

Step 2 – Edit the xml. You can export other Document Types if you cannot find the attributes you want.

Step 3 – Import the Document Type.

I have been using Umbraco the past few months with little trouble, except for this problem.  Is seems quite rare, as I could find nothing about it on the Umbraco forums or online.
