Since upgrading to Selena (both 6667 and 7000) I've been getting
frequent HotSpot crashes (IDEA suddenly disappears and leaves a
hs_err.pid file behind). Is anyone else experiencing this?
I recently tried reverting to using Java 1.5.0_08, which was supplied
with earlier versions of IDEA, instead of 1.5.0_10 which is supplied
with the newer versions, but that seems to have had no effect on the
frequency of the crashes.
6.0.4 used to be stable. I have not yet tried to go back to that
version, since I'm not sure whether the project files are stable, but I
guess that is the next thing to try.
The computer seems to be stable except for these crashes. I'm running
Windows XP with the latest fixes, on a 1.8 GHz P4 machine with 1 GB of
memory. I might try a memtest86 run tonight to be sure there aren't
memory issues, but that seems to be an unlikely cause given that it
appears to crash in the same place every time.
I realize that HotSpot crashes generally aren't something you can affect
from within Java, but I'm attaching a few of the crash logs in case
anyone here can help identify the problem or suggest a workaround.
