I have run into a problem on both my work and home PCs (both
Windows XP SP2) running 6708. 6700 may have also had the
problem. On some java files, the syntax/error parsing takes
place, but even after mr. inspector is done, IDEA is still busy
Also, if I mouse over a hilighted error, the error/warning
tooltip will pop up for a split second, but then disappear. If I
move the mouse around, the tooltip will repeatedly pop up and
disappear very rapidly.
I uploaded cpu snapshot 6708_Alex_16.02.2007_23.28.04b.zip to
ftp.intellij.net/.uploads (Note the 'b'. My first upload failed
and left a partial file, so I reuploaded, adding a 'b'. The
filesize is 2969151 bytes).
What I did was load a file into the editor, waited for syntax
parsing/hilighter to complete, waited 1 more minute, IDEA is still
showing cpu busy even though nothing visible is happening.
Then, I started the cpu snapshot, and I startd mousing over some
of the warnings in the editor pane to get the tooltips to show up
and disappear repeatedly. I did this for about 10 seconds, then
stopped the capture.
It is not happening on every single Java file, but it tends to
be happening on the ones with more errors/warnings, but I haven'
t discovered an exact pattern. Again, the mr. inspector says
he is done -- The square at top of gutter is solid yellow and
the tooltip for that says "Analysis complete". Also, that
tooltip is also appearing and disappearing rapidly just like the
warning tooltip inside the editor pane. I hope the cpu
snapshot might tell you what the problem is, because it is
annoying for me..
