IDEA 9.0.2 suddenly stopped working, can't start it anymore

Last night I quit IDEA 9.0.2 without problems. Today I cannot start it anymore. Startup fails instantly without an error message. Error log shows nothing. I can start IDEA from the command line, but then all my settings/license etc. are gone. Seems idea.sh doesn't know about Mac config locations. How should I proceed? Reinstalling didn't help. IDEA IU-95.66, Mac OS 10.6.3.

Could you please attach your log file?
It's usually in <USER_HOME>/.IntelliJIdea90/system/log/idea.log

Where can I send it to? Don't want to post it to a public thread, and the forum doesn't seem to allow me to set visibility.

YouTrack will allow setting attachment visability to jetbrains developers only.

After deleting /Users/xxx/Library/Caches/IntelliJIdea90, IDEA is back to normal. Instability of IDEA is frustrating (and time-consuming).
