Intensive loop in functions_time.php

Under very certain and rare circumstances, it is possible to make a portion of code in functions_time.php (a loop) run millions of times before it stops. This can cause long page loads where functions_time.php is used (just the member.php page by the looks of it) and raise the server load. Therefore this is being categorized as a performance issue. The fix is small and simple and will be updated in the MyBB 1.4.10 package. An announcement on the MyBB blog will be made for those users who wish to apply the fix [it will be recommended]. A new release will not be made considering the severity of this problem is minimal and because a MyBB 1.6 release is not too far out.
