Multiple Navigation Nodes Problem and Navigation Deadlock in SharePoint 2010

Symtoms:
Issue happens after  August 2012 CU installed for SharePoint Server 2010.

After publishing a new page the site load times start to increase dramatically or page requests don’t finish loading at all. You will see the infamous “An expected error has occurred“-error or if the callstack is enabled and custom errors are turned off in the web.config (CallStack=”true” / customErrors mode=”Off”) you will see a “Request timed out.” error-message.

System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException: Transaction (Process ID 76) was deadlocked on lock resources with another process and has been chosen as the deadlock victim. Rerun the transaction. at System.Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection.OnError(SqlException exception, Boolean breakConnection)
at System.Data.SqlClient.TdsParser.ThrowExceptionAndWarning(TdsParserStateObject stateObj)
at System.Data.SqlClient.TdsParser.Run(RunBehavior runBehavior, SqlCommand cmdHandler, SqlDataReader dataStream, BulkCopySimpleResultSet bulkCopyHandler, TdsParserStateObject stateObj)
at System.Data.SqlClient.SqlDataReader.HasMoreRows()

The form cannot be rendered. This may be due to a misconfiguration of the Microsoft SharePoint Server State Service

First check that the state service Application has started and State Service Application Proxy has been assigned to your web Application ;

Open your Central Administration
Go to Application Management
Under Service Applications click Configure service application associations
Click on the Application Service Proxy Group of the WebApplication you’re trying your workflow on
Find State Service Application and make it checked .

If you dont have State Service Application you can create a new one by below;

1. Click and lunch  Start->All Programs -> Microsoft SharePoint 2010 Products->  SharePoint 2010 Management Shell .
2. In Windows PowerShell, type $stateapp= New-SPStateServiceApplication -Name “State Service Application”
3. Create a State Service database and associate it with a service application, by typing New-SPStateServiceDatabase -Name “StateServiceDatabase” -ServiceApplication $stateapp
4. Create a State Service Application Proxy and associate it with the service application by typing New-SPStateServiceApplicationProxy -Name “State Service Application Proxy” -ServiceApplication $stateapp -DefaultProxyGroup
