Build 5561 locking up when clicking 'Stop Process' in the Run window

When I run a java process in IDEA using a run configuration target and then try to kill it using the stop process button in the run tool window, the IDEA interfaces locks up. If I can kill the process thru a menu ( i.e. running a Swing app and using File | Exit ) then IDEA unfreezes. However if I don't have that option I have to kill the launched process outside of IDEA to get it to unfreeze.

Does anyone else see this?

This is a known problem which will be fixed in the next EAP build.

Same problem here, it makes the turnaround time a real pain. As a workaround I use Debug (terminates immediately) instead of Run.

I get the same problem, but I find the process will terminate correctly with the 'Exit' option (the icon of a brick fireplace with a red arrow).

Unfortunately, it's hard to break the Ctrl-F2 (Stop) habit which causes the lock-up.
