Doubleclick select erratic/fails

Hey All,

I am new to RubyMine (I am getting real tired of Aptana crashing hourly), and so far RubyMine has been working for me except for one show-stopper for me:

While using the editor, I am having problems with doubleclick to select -- about 70% of the time it works, but the remainder of the time, I have to double click 5-10 times on a fragment to get the darn thing to select.  This makes RubyMine essentially unusable.

I've noticed a similar problem in the project browser -- to open a file, it may take numerous doubleclick actions.

I *know* it's not a system setting for clickspeed, as other applications work as expected (and I turned it all the way up to test).

I am running build 975 on 64-bit Ubuntu with the VM settings turned up somewhat.  I while ago I tried out build 883, but it would freeze on my system after about 5 minutes of usage.

I have the same problem under Ubuntu 32-bit, running the same build: Build #975. When navigating to open a file, double-clicking about as fast as I possibly can usually navigates me down to the next directory. My system settings are not nearly that fast for my double-click speed.

This makes RubyMine almost unusable, certainly not something I can buy.

You can try to use shortcuts : F4 - navigate to sources (Project View/Test Runner/Find Usages dialog), Ctrl+W for selecting successively increasing code blocks (identifier -> expression -> ... -> method -> class -> ... -> file)

Scott and which JVM implementation do you use (Sun or OpenJDK) ?

Please try the latest Sun JDK available 6 update 15.

I updated to the latest sun jdk (64bit) and I don't think it's much better.  Basically, I've had to "retrain" myself to use ctrl+w for word select and to hit enter after selecting a file with the mouse...
