IDEA 12 RC3 won't launch

Well, technically it launches. I get the "import previous version settings" dialog, then the license dialog, then the plugins dialog; then nothing, the main window doesn't come up. Anyone else seeing this?

IntelliJ IDEA 12.0, build IU-123.67 running on Mac OS X 10.7.4, Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_37-b06-434-11M3909)

This is on a fresh install. I've nuked ~/Library/[Application Support|Caches|Logs|Preferences]/IntelliJIDEA12 before installing this build.

Here's my idea.log:

Are there any thread dumps in the logs directory?

None. The app doesn't crash, it's still running, just not showing any windows. The Application menu (named IntelliJ IDEA, next to the Apple icon) is responsive even, but selecting an item doesn't do anything.

Can you capture a thread dump using jstack?

I have this issue with the new 12.0.1 public build running on a Mac OS X 10.8.2.
I have downloaded the CE edition and installed it on a computer hich didn't have a previuous version installed.

I did find out my problem — it turned out there's no real problem. My GPU has a weird bug where it detects a secondary screen when there's none — IDEA was then getting “displayed” on this nonexistent screen. To fix this, I've checked the “mirror displays” option in System Preferences -> Displays, making all windows gather up in one screen, and then uncheck it.

I don't know if there's anything JetBrains can do to avoid this, or if it's worth to go after such a weird bug. Maybe always launch IDEA in the primary screen (the one with the menu bar)?
