I've been working with IntelliJ for a few years, synching with svn, and now suddenly I'm having difficulties. The status bar says "Collecting information on changes", with a little spinner, but takes forever to finish the job -- sometimes 10 or 15 minutes. It seems to accomplish the task eventually, usually, so it has proven that it can still work. But during this time, a pop-up box emerges every 30-60 sec saying "svn has stopped working". There's some additional verbiage and a link/button that reads "Close the program". Closing the program repeatedly seems to eventually get me to the goal, but the days of (near) instant gratification are gone.
I had been working with an earlier minor version of 13, so I upgraded to latest to see if it would resolve this issue, but it would not. Interestingly, I had to download latest manually, because trying the auto-update through the IDE causes a pop-up box that reads "Connection failed. Please check your network connection and try again." There's nothing wrong with my network connection. I can browse interwebs freely, and incidentally I can also use Tortoise repo browser to access the svn repository with no problems. Edit: also, although I mark the checkbox to have IntelliJ remeber my credentials to access svn, I am still asked to re-key them every time I re-start IntelliJ.
IDE version is 13.1.5
OS is Win7 SP1 64-bit
