Flex debugger unusably slow

The Flex debugger has become unusably slow on my machine. I think it has to do with the fact that the project hit a critical size (> 1000 classes), because it used to work until a few days ago. The RUN configuration is fine, and the exact same project debugs fine in Flex Builder, so it does not have to do with the Flash Player Debug, my machine has plenty of resources. I already deleted the IDEA caches completely, but it did not help. IDEA does not consume excessive CPU cycles when it becomes slow.

Environment: OS-X 10.5.7, 8-Core 15GB machine

Any idea what might cause this?

Thanks and Regards,

I have the same problem. It makes debugging Flex applications extremely painful. I've created a ticket about it at http://youtrack.jetbrains.net/issue/IDEA-25222
