Although given I do not know what caused this this is only to see if anyone else has had this problem.
Suddenly today, my IDEA debugger started taking an inordinate ammount of CPU time. I opened "Run" and checked to make sure I had no method or exception breakpoints and according to the GUI I did not. So I removed the only breakpoint I had set and tried again.
It still happened. After a bit, out of total fustration I removed the project and rebuilt it from scratch. That did indeed work. Yes I'm now kicking myself for not saving a copy of the broken project, but I really didn't think that would work . Just a shot in the dark has anyone had this happen to them?
Next time (if there is a next time of course) I'll be sure to save the old project files before performing the work around.
