Another question from a newbie plugin developer: How do I run multiple
instances of IDEA? I want to keep one copy running which I use for
editing my plugin and then be able to run another copy to test the changes.
I recalled reading something about changing the system path, so I made a
copy (on Linux) of the IDEA/bin/idea and idea.lax files, edited the
copies to use a different system path but the same config path and then
tried running first the original and then the copy. But the copy gave
the usual error of only one copy of IDEA can run at a time. The log file
in the copy's system directory had exceptions about a socket address
already being in use.
