Last week I upgraded IntelliJ 6 to IntelliJ 8.1.3. However now my debugger in intelliJ is really slow.
I run the app I'm working with in Debug mode. Then when any user interaction is required it even takes a second to have a button highlighted. Pressing such a button has a reaction of several seconds.
When it should open a new screen it also takes minutes instead of seconds. Even opening a little popup for a datepicker takes 25 seconds.
This behaviour immediately stops when I mute breakpoints and everything works as it should. However this gives me a serious debugging handicap.
This all happens in client code (Swing). So this should be independent of any application server.
