Clipboard issue with IDEA

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.

http://bugs.sun.com/bugdatabase/view_bug.do?bug_id=4818143

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
JDK 1.5.0_11
Red Hat Linux 2.6.9-42.0.2.EL-smp-i686

Thanks!

Well, the bug report quite clearly states the bug is fixed in Mustang. So the solution seems to be: try jdk 6

The bug was fixed in JDK 6, you can use it as work around

I tried using JDK 1.6.0 but received an error message from IDEA when I attempted to start it saying it would only work with 1.5 or 1.4.2. I was hoping to avoid the cost of upgrading my version of IDEA. There are also several posts at the bottom of the bug report which states that the issue is still occurring with IDEA 6.0.2 and and JDK 1.6. So I really don't to upgrade if I am going to have the same problem.

It is not fixed. I still get this error sporadicly

Using: Intellij 7.02 with java-6-sun-1.6.0.03 and Linux (ubuntu 7.10)

It's hard to reproduce. I mostly get it when I used the right bottom mouse menu.

It is very annoying as it hangs and you need to restart the IDE.
