IDEA 8.1 Crashes suddenly with IME input

IDEA 8.1 crashes suddenly when I input text with IME -- it happens when I switch between languages. It doesn't always crash; roughly every 10~15 times. I'd say it's more like a random event, but it does happen everyday during my development time.

My environment is WinXP SP3. Log file shows no trace of the crash incident.

Please help!!!

Hello Michael,

IDEA 8.1 crashes suddenly when I input text with IME -- it happens
when I switch between languages. It doesn't always crash; roughly
every 10~15 times. I'd say it's more like a random event, but it does
happen everyday during my development time.

My environment is WinXP SP3. Log file shows no trace of the crash
incident.


Most likely this is a JDK bug, and we can do nothing about JDK bugs. You
may want to check for hs_err*.log files in the IDEA bin directory - they're
created when the IDEA JVM crashes.

Got it. Will report the bug to SUN JDK.

Just wondering though, IDEA 8.1 is using JRE 6 update 10, is it okay if I upgrade the JRE under IDEA folder to update 12? Just to try my luck in case the bug's fixed in later JRE already.

Thanks,
Michael

Yes, JRE 1.6.0_12 should work just fine. We'll bundle it in the next 8.1.x
update.

FYI, crash still happens with JRE 6u12. Problem went away after I downgrade to JRE 6u4 obtained from IDEA 7.
