Code Outline plugin: blank on startup

Hey Keith,

when I start IDEA and reopen a project, the Code Outline
floating window is usually the first one to show up and it's
always empty (gray background). Once the project is finally
loaded and the editor comes up with a file, the Code Outline
window stays gray. I need to give it focus (i.e. move it around)
to have it refresh properly and show some content.

It's not a big deal really but I thought I'd mention it. When are
you coming up with the next version again? :)

Vince.

Mine is blank most of the time - I've seen it work now and again, but if
it's grey it stays grey.

Someone said that it doesn't work good when floating.
Try docked. And don't ask why ;)

The problem with docked is that you can have only
so many docked windows at the same time.

I really think that's a point where Eclipse is far superior:
I have so much real estate wasted with IDEA and I always
want to be able to display more (especially when debugging)
but I'm limited to only a few docked windows that constantly
fight for space. Sad.

I'll have to look into this. I don't know why it would happen - I'm pretty sure I call repaint(), but maybe not, or something. I don't think I'll be releasing a new version for a few months at least. Schoolwork has started to pile up now that the semester is almost over.
