A few ideas:

Is it possible you have some customisations that are screwing this up? 
In particular, have you customised base_edit.pt somewhere?

Try uninstalling all 3rd party products and see if it still happens.

You say the browser 'locks up' - does this happen in both IE and Firefox?

Does the event.log give any clues?

Another approach - act on the assumumption that migration has screwed 
all permissions up (it does sometimes seem to mess with stuff thats been 
customised through the ZMI) - and re-audit your permissions / sharing 
/workflow. This might track down the problem.

Hope that helps,
