I'm running into this persistent problem with the application that I work with where it is just hanging. I'm trying to see the threads to get an idea of what is going on. I tried dumping threads while running in Idea, but there was no output. I tried running in the debugger, but when I hit pause, I don't see any threads in the drop down menu of running threads and the pause menu stays grey, so the only option I have at that point is to kill the debugger.
Is this a common problem? I've seen it from time to time, but would like to know what's going on that is preventing Idea from showing the threads. My CPU is almost completely idle while all of this is going on, so it appears something is just hung. I'm running the latest IntelliJ 8 version.
