Very poor refactoring performance

I have been using IntelliJ 13 for the last month (as does my whole team). I am using a Mac 2.3GHz i7, and 16GB, 64bit.
java -version
java version "1.7.0_40"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_40-b43)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 24.0-b56, mixed mode)

When ever i do a refactor->move, or rename it can take as long as 1 min (single class) or > 1hr for a group of clases. CPU hits 110%

Intially IntelliJ was only using up to 510MB, which was suspisciously close to 512 so i increasedt he max memory to 2GB, right now it sits around 1GB, so I know that change worked.
That had no effect on the speed, so then per a SO post I deleted the ~/Library/Caches/IntelliJIdea13 folder and let intelliJ rebuild the cache/index, and it worked for that session. Also if a re-clone my git project into a new folder and open with intellij, it works faster.

Other than this problem I love intelliJ. Not sure if it is relevant but I also paid for the license recently.

Thanks

Could you please take a CPU snapshot and submit it as described in https://intellij-support.jetbrains.com/entries/29983118-Reporting-performance-problems

Thanks for the update, please watch http://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IDEA-119500 to get notified of updates.

Could you please try updating to version 13.0.1 (Build:133.331) or try 13.0.2 EAP (http://eap.jetbrains.com/idea/) to see if there's changes in your setup? Thanks.

You could also try to disable "Grails" plugin for larger refactorings, though you might risk broken code on "rename".
