I've been having an issue with copying and pasting text within IDEA, and copying/pasting text into or out of IDEA. Copying or pasting will frequently cause IDEA to hang. It normally comes back, but it has become very frustrating and is starting to make me look for another IDE. I normally receive the pop work around message referencing the following bug when I first start up IDEA and attempt to copy/paste.
It is then very sporadic. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. It seems to be 50/50. When it doesn't work, I wait in upwards of 2 minutes for IDEA to stop hanging. The bug reference says it was fixed. Does anyone know a fix, or a real work around? Are other people having the problems as well?
I'm using IntelliJ IDEA 5.1.2 Build #4267
Red Hat Linux 2.6.9-42.0.2.EL-smp-i686
