IDEA 9 Flex support throws many errors

I'm working on a moderately complex Flex project: base application with 6 modules and one shared library. IDEA 9 (92.105) can't run for more than 10 minutes before it reports a fatal error. Usually, it's only a couple of minutes before IDEA encounters a fatal error in either CSS Support or its Flex support, although other areas also cause it problems. Whenever these problems occur, I send the report to JetBrains.

These problems, coupled with the degraded performance of its Flex support, have pushed me and my colleagues back to FlexBuilder for day to day editing. We now only use IDEA when we need to do something complex that FlexBuilder can't handle.

It's a shame, not only because I've used IDEA for almost 10 years, but because FlexBuilder 3 is such a lousy editor. I hope IDEA's Java support is still top notch. I also very much hope its Flex support improves dramatically over the course of this release.

Could you please try to remove "C:\Documents and Settings\Maxim.Mossienko\.IntelliJIdea90\system\index\"  and check if it helps.
Could you please post links for your reports so that we could fix them (do not see anything from you in youtrack)

I'm running on a Mac, so I deleted the Caches/IntelliJIdea90/index directory. Is that the right one?

Hmm, where do the reports go when you submit them from the IDEA crash reporter? While I haven't provided my username and password every time I submit a report, I've provided it several times over the past month or two. Do all the crash reports end up in youtrack, even anonymous, or do they get filtered first?

Should I just copy and paste the text from the crash report and then file a youtrack issue?
