Saving in 6.0.4 (6148) is dog slow

When I click the save-toolbar button - even if no file has been changed,
IDEA takes 5 to 10 seconds to get responsible again. A few weeks ago I did
not noticed such a slow down. Deactivating the AntiVir Guard did not change
that. What else can I do?

OS: WinXP Pro SP2
RAM 1.5GB
Project location: hard disk

Running the same configuration (with slightly more RAM - 2Gb) and saving takes zero time for me (IDEA 6.0.4). I would try cleaning up all IDEA caches, on Windows it's "C:\Documents and Settings\+]]>+\.IntelliJIdea60\system"

A quick question - do you use Subversion and do you use Tortoise?

We had this problem on two of our developers machines the other day and it turned out that a particular version of Tortoise they were using had corrupted their working copy - it still worked, but saving in IDEA (or Eclipse for that matter) took 5-10 seconds and their machine was completely unresponsive. Carrying out a clean checkout with IDEA solved the problem.

No. I'm using SmartCVS for this project, for other SmartSVN (we eat our own
dog food).

But wiping the caches seems to have really helped.
