I have a quite large idea-project with files spread all over the harddisc, configured in several modules. The idea-vm is given a maximum of 420 megs and I'm experiencing an always growing stock of used memory which can't be freed by garbage-collecting. Several times I've left my machine with about 40 megs free and when I came back maybe 20 minutes later idea was locked with an OutOfMemoryError.
If I remove just the InspectionGadgets.jar the problem is gone and I can always push the memory usage back to 60-100 megs by triggering the garbage-collection.
Does anybody else experience a similar behaviour?
I'm using Build 977 on Windows NT 4.0 with InspectionGadgets.jar sized 787901 created on 2003-10-15 (supposed to be the current release).
