appcode suddenly crashing like crazy when doing a bunch of 'find usages'

I've never had this problem before, I use find usages quite a bit and I've found it and appcode in general to be extremely stable.

howver I must be running into some kind of consistant edge condition because appcode has been crashing after a couple minutes of work as I trace through the functionality of some classes.

I dont think I am doing anything odd. this is my process.

  1. I find usages for a property in a class.
  2. pin the tab
  3. look through each usage until I see another property or function I want to look into
  4. do a second find usages for that property or function
  5. when I discover something useful I add a note to a non-project txt file that is open in another window
  6. continue through all the usages of the original properties

it usually takes anywhere from 1-4 times for appcode to crash.



Dave, we'll try reproducing it shortly, meanwhile, could you please attach a crash report?


been busy today but I'll try and repro it tomorrow. now that I moved off that task it's much more stable.

but I'll get you a crash report tomorrow


tried to repro again and I couldn't. Not sure why it was so consistantly crashing and now it's fine.

I spent about a day just doing a ton of find usages and pinning tabs. some find usages were tiggered from the main editor, some were triggered from a previous find usage preview panel.


OK, please let us know, if it happens again and attach crash reports and logs from Help | Show Log in Finder)


By the way, have you tried looking in the ~/Library/Logs/DiagnosticReports directory? It should contain all recent crash reports.

Thanks for your help!
Seems that is the problem with focus transfer between Java components.
