Mark Directory As Excluded does not complete -- how to manually exclude a?

I'm using PyCharm 2022.3 (for the older UI), and recently created a new virtualenv “venv-pycharm” at the root of my project. For some reason PyCharm does not want to exclude this directory, and only shows “Cancel Exclusion” indefinitely. There's very little disk I/O, and I've cancelled and retried it with several hours in between.


Is there something wrong with how I've done this?

I was able to just make a new environment through the IDE itself (instead of on the CLI) and that seems to have resolved the issue, but this does seem to be a bug!
