I noticed that my .IdeaIC90 folder (on linux) became very very large (30 Gb +). After invalidating caches the indexing process took also a very long time.
It seems that PyCharm is biting itself stuck on a symlink in /usr/bin/X11 . This folder has a symlink named X11 to itself. It seems that PyCharm searches very deep and indexes everything it comes across (eventhough it is every level the same).
Is this the problem that makes my cache so big? If yes, is there some way to exclude /usr/bin/X11/X11 from being indexed?
Should I maybe file this as bug?
