I'm using IDEA 8.1 (build 9732) on Ubuntu 9.04, Java 1.6.0_13. It now happend two times, that when IDEA hit a breakpoint in the debug session, the whole desktop became unresponsive. Fortunately, I could switch to console using Ctrl+Alt-F1 and kill the first of the two Java processes. After switching back with Alt-F7 the IDEA window was gone and the desktop responsive again.
Is this a know problem or might it be caused by my particular system?
