SLOW compile/IG performance

I have inherited some extremely large problems. There are times when
the syntax check or the IG checking takes FOREVER. It appears this is
due to this being a low priority thread. Does anyone else have this
problem? Is it worth adding an enhancement to increase the thread
priority (or whatever)?

Thread priority shouldn't really matter -- as long as you aren't doing
anything else with the machine, the low priority background thread
should use approximately 100% of the CPU.

You're not switching to another program while IDEA is checking for
errors in the background, are you? Because IDEA stops checking for
errors as soon as it loses the focus, so this approach won't work
(unfortunately).

This is while still within the idea window. The square in the upper
right-hand corner will be the yellow-eye or just blank.
