Execute the steps below to reproduce the issue at will:

  1. Create a new space based on the Document Exchange template.
  2. Create a new subspace based on Document Exchange template.
  3. Create a page in an existing Space (NOT subspace)
  4. Make a copy of the Default Spaces Catalog, edit the copy, and add the search task flow (from library) to the resource catalog. Make the copy visible (Show).
  5. Go back to the Spaces created, set the Default page template and spaces template to use the newly created one (with search taskflow.)
  6. Add the Search task flow to the page 
  7. Configure the Search task flow: set search scope to: #{spaceContext.currentSpace.subspaceGuids}
  8. Service to be Included: oracle.webcenter.doclib
  9. Perform a search
  10. Now, click on a different Space from the drop down navigation menu. Notice, it freezes (IE9, Chrome dev 25.0 and Firefox 16)
  11. Navigate to home space and then user will be able to use the drop down menu to access other spaces
  12. Perform the search, click on the subspace pages, the issue does NOT replicate
