IntelliJ crashes when pressing enter

Hey,

I have repeatedly the same error:

Move the cursor to line 2 of the code, press enter, Intellij crashes.
IntelliJ also crashed when I tried to copy the code into this post (every time I tried out).

It also crashes in other occasions that I cannot describe right now.

package xxx;

public enum Size {
   S, M, L, XL;

   private static final Size[] VALUES = values();

   public static Size fromInt(int s) {
      return VALUES[s];
   }
}


Some details about my intellij and computer:
IntelliJ IDEA 13.1.3
Build #IC-135.909, 13. May 2014
JRE: 1.8.0_05b13 amd64

Running fully up-to-date arch linux on a lenovo x230 T.

Some help or suggestions would be really appreciated, since I did like to continue using IntelliJ.

Take a look at the log files to see if therre is any indication as to the cause of the crashes. You can view them via Help > Show Log or navigate to the system/log directory (see the document Directories used by the IDE to store settings, caches, plugins and logs for its location). I would also try disabling all third-party plug-ins. Random crashes is a pretty significant bug, and if it was common place, IDEA would not have been released with it in place. At the very least, there would be a lot more discussion about it on the forums. So I have a pretty strong suspicion it is a third-party plug-in causing the issue.

Thx a lot. A look in the logs suggested its the latex plugin, and disabling it stopped making IJ crash where it crashed before.
I wasn't really aware of any enabled third party plugins, however I remembered the menu. Otherwise I would probably have tried that out before.
But most of the plugins are there from the beginning, right? I removed IJ today to reinstall it, so that should have taken away all plugins.

A large number will be. Any plugins included with IntelliJ IDEA are refereed to as "Bundled". The pluf-in listing use to actually show the word "bundled" under the plug-in. But now it just uses a different icon. Bundled plug-ins have the JetBrains logo plug-in-bundled.png where as third-party or "custom" plug-ins do not plug-in-custom.png.  At the top, you can filter the plug-ins to only show bundled, or only show custom. You can then disable or uninstall any custom ones you do not want or use:
