Thread dump frustration

I'm trying to get thread dump from idea because every time I do
something somewhere with either 2155 or 3177 I can consistently hang it,
and I want to know why, and report it so JB can see where.

Problem is that though I start the app from the command line on OS X, I
can do a kill -3 pid to test and see if I get a thread dump and I do,
generally this is when idea is idle, however when the IDE hangs, and I
do a kill -3 pid, I get nothing to the console. It's really
frustrating. I redirected all output to CONSOLE-ALL, and I can see the
log scrolling by in the console, so that's doing it right.

What's going on here, is there a trick to consistently get a thread dump
when something like that happens?
