As noted I've filed a bug report based off this.
Currently Being ModeratedNov 2, 2007 12:26 PM (in response to Steve Morris)Yep - I'm getting exactly that error too, at around about the same frequency. Started happening a few minutes after upgrading from a (fully up-to-date) Tiger.

Currently Being ModeratedNov 5, 2007 5:33 AM (in response to Isaac Ordonez)The thread is closed or doesn't exist anymore, wich makes me think it is a known problem with Apple which they don't want to go too public...
So I guess we will just wait

The problem occurs when you are behind a proxy server and:
A) You have RSS feeds in mail.app
B) You have .Mac Synchronization turned on
Having .Mac on cases PubSubAgent to crash every ~20 minutes, Having a large number of RSS feeds in Mail.app can cause PubSubAgent to crash very frequently (every couple of minutes).
What to do to fix this:
A) Don't be behind a proxy server
B) Delete all RSS feeds in Mail.app and Turn off .Mac Synchronization.
I have the same problem when I'm behind my university's Windows proxy server. Once the PubSubAgent has crashed several times it sometimes remains locked up even when I wake my MacBookPro at home and it's on WiFi without a proxy. The agent then can't be killed via terminal command either.
Since there is a problem with https handling in Leopard as well which makes Safari (and OmniWeb as well) crash when accessing https sites from behind the Windows proxy server I wonder if this is a symptom of the same problem.MacBookPro 17'', Mac OS X (10.5)
Currently Being ModeratedNov 17, 2007 11:19 PM (in response to spacemanspiff99de)I have been experiencing the same problem - I cannot access my work's secure outlook mail server using Safari.
10.5.1 - doesn't solve the .Mac syncing issue either. I still get the "PubSubAgent quit unexpectedly.." error everytime .Mac sync is on. I disabled it to get rid of it. Mail's RSS is disabled/unused too.17" MacBook Pro Intel, Mac OS X (10.5), Intel Core Duo 2.4 Ghz / 4 GB / 160 GB / High-Res Baby!
Currently Being ModeratedNov 21, 2007 3:29 AM (in response to Isaac Ordonez)I had to resort to disabling Privoxy, because in addition to the PubSubAgent crash (that I worked around by turning off bookmark syncing), it makes Safari crash very often when accessing a site that uses HTTP authentication.PowerMac G5 2x2 GHz, PowerBook 12" 867 MHz, Mac OS X (10.4.5)
Currently Being ModeratedNov 21, 2007 5:47 AM (in response to Olivier Scherler)In your Network control panel, enter ".mac.com" in the bypass proxy settings to fix the problem w/ the PubSubAgent crash. Only works w/ proxy servers that you don't HAVE to go through to access the Internet. Corporate users need not apply...
You're probably sending HTTPS traffic through Privoxy. Turn off "Secure Web Proxy" to work around the problem with Safari crashing. Again, only works w/ Privoxy or any proxy server that you don't HAVE to go through. Probably a Safari bug -- I use Privoxy for HTTPS (URL's only) and it works fine, but I don't use Safari. Make sure you have the latest Privoxy -- there was a new version (Universal) out a while back.Mac OS X (10.5.1)
Currently Being ModeratedDec 7, 2007 1:34 PM (in response to David G. Hong)This is so frustrating. I get the "PubSubAgent quit unexpectedly error" every few minutes, sometimes every minute or so. It seems like a lot of people are having this problem. I can't even run Mail because it freezes, so I have had to use Entourage since I've upgraded to Leopard.
Come on Apple, what is taking you so long to fix this?!?eMac, MacBook, Mac OS X (10.5.1)
Changing the proxy bypass setting worked for me... thankfully at work our proxy server is set through each computer so I could actually edit the bypass list manually. Very annoying problem though.iMac, Mac OS X (10.5.1)
Currently Being ModeratedDec 23, 2007 11:30 PM (in response to Steve Morris)Why is this thread marked as answered? By no means has this been fruitfully answered, or "solved". Hacking network settings is not an "Apple" answer to Apple services like .mac and mail.app. If my mom couldn't do it without pulling her hair out then it's not fixed. Apple, what gives? This is driving me absolutely nuts!imac, Mac OS X (10.5.1)
