Comment (by ryan):

 That is a completely evil permalink structure.  %postname% and %category%
 are adjacent and separated by a dash. Dash is a valid character within
 %postname% and %category%, making the resulting regular expression have to
 do a ton of backtracking before it throws up it hands for being asked the
 impossible.  Try using "/" instead of "-" as a separator.  Or, just use
 one of the default structures.  They are guaranteed to work and be
 reasonably fast.
