Build #3368 Opening project in new frame yields empty project

Man I just can't seen to get a break. After doing a rename directory to get Idea to open my project, I tried to get it to open up another project in a new frame and this resulted in what appeared to be an empty project. However, all of the project files are there - IntelliJ just won't parse them.

UPDATE

After relaunching Idea, the projects that Idea was originally showing as empty are indeed now empty. Idea is eating project files!

IDEA is hungry. Feed donuts to it and it'll stop eating your project files.

Does it eat (or feed to various cats) source code too?

It isn't eating the source, just the actual project information. It looks as if there isn't any project information in the project at all. If I look at the IDE itself its also missing the Run and TODO tabls at the bottom (only showing IG Telemetry). In the Project tab the Project tree is completely empty - no tree nodes at all.

I've been working on a project where the files I am working on get overwritten with newer versions while I have the project closed (don't ask, you'll hate hearing the answer almost as much as I will hate having to say it). I've noticed that when Idea reopens a project it uses it's "internal" view of the files in the project and has often goten confused and not shown files that were, and still are, in the source tree. Syncrionizing the files manually (by pushing the button with the circular arrows on it) fixes this most of the time, but after doing this 5 or 6 times it stops fixing the problem and I have to readd the project.

Hmm, sounds like your cache directory needs to be burninated. I've had a few similar things happen to me for the same reasons. IDEA looks too much in it's caches and fuxors anything from dependencies to refusing to recompile something it feels it has an up-to-date copy of.

Ill formatted and buggy code may cause IDEA indigestion.
