strange i/o behavior consumes processes

I've noticed that when idle, my hard drive is continuously doing some i/o. I downloaded ProcMon.exe from SysInternals (http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sysinternals/default.mspx) and found the culprit. Idea.exe sits there and constantly tries to find the following file... C:\Documents and Settings\gsnider\Local Settings\Temp\e4j_p4564.tmp. So if I create the dumb file, idea sees it and then deletes it, and begins searching again for the same .tmp file. But.. the filename that idea searches for changes every time I restart Idea.

So my question is, does anyone else see this strange behavior? Or can anyone tell me why precious resources are being consumed looking for some arbitrary .tmp file?

This is EXE4J support for open project file (you can launch via batch
file to avoid it)

Thanks! that works. What JRE does Idea prefer to run in? The one that comes with IntelliJ? in %IDEA_HOME% ?
