Most annoying bugs on OSX

I'm running an iMac (Intel Core i7-2600 CPU @ 3.40GHz) with 16GB RAM under OS X 10.9.5. I noticed a few infuriating bugs:

* Clion hogs CPU. It drives the iMac into superheat mode with the fan spinning, even when not doing anything. Just having the program run creates this problem. I do not take this lightly, as it costs a lot of energy and machine degradation. I know of no other program that has this destructive behaviour. Please fix it! 

* Also I'm not using it for a particular project any more, as it hangs itself up every five to ten minutes. The project went public domain and I can link it here. It's a C++ template-heavy codebase: https://github.com/meteo-ubonn/meanie3D.

Oh I forgot to mention another one: when clicking on any symbol in that project using CMD-click, which normally would follow to it's definition or declaration, the IDE instantly freezes every single time. The only way to snap it out of it is to force-quit and restart, which invariably leads to a loss of changes. Highly frustrating!!

I had similar issues until I gave Clion a lot more memory. 

You can see how much memory is being used by enabling the Show memory indicator setting.

Thanks, Thomas. I already increased memory up to 512 (max 4GB) for the heap and  32Mb for the stack. No help.
