Very long file synchronization on MacOS

I convinced a colleague to try Idea. He is on MacOS (Powerbook G4).
When he starts Idea he gets asked twice for a password for fslogger.

Still, file synchronization is dead slow:
After a SVN Update Project the dialog stays in stage "Synchronizing files" for a couple of minutes, even if only a single file changed.

Is there any trick that makes this work?
Should I file a Jira issue?

Please file an issue with a CPU snapshot attached.

I would kindly request you to take a snapshot of refresh activities in 5561.

Thanks for the answer.
I'd like to do that but I have no clue how to capture a snapshot on MacOS.
In my own Idea running on Windows there are toolbar buttons to capture Mem and CPU snapshots.
In Idea running on MacOS those buttons are missing?!

Please edit the Contents/info.plist file in the IDEA bundle and add "-agentlib:yjpagent"
to the VMOptions key.

I wonder why YJP is enabled by default during the EAP in all platforms, except OS X?

We used to use YJP 5.0 which is incompatible with Intel Macs. Now we're going
to upgrade to YJP 5.5 and enable it on all platforms.

If you need any more information, just tell me.

Did you import existing settings into IDEA? I've had a lot of similar issues that were solved by removing the .IntelliJIdea60 folder and starting from scratch.

That might be, he first tried Idea 5.1 until I told him about the EAP.
But where for heavens sake is the .IntelliJIdea60 folder on MacOS?
It's not in the user's home directory (and yes, we did "ls -a").

It's split in three folders in Mac OS X:

Preferences (.IntelliJIDEA60/config) are in ~/Library/Preferences/IntelliJIDEA60
Caches (.IntelliJIDEA60/system) are in ~/Library/Caches/IntelliJIDEA60
Plugins (.IntelliJIDEA/config/plugins) are in ~/Library/Application Support/IntelliJIDEA60

I commend JetBrains for actually following OS X guidelines for this, instead of just doing the same thing as in other OS'es.
