IDEA 6.0.2 lock up issues

Hi,

We've been using IDEA 3.x for a few years now with out any issues, but have recently upgraded so we can use the new Java language features. I've been playing with version 6.0.2 (Build 6107) of IDEA for a few days now, but it keeps locking up. This is particularly a problem when:

1) We try to close down IDEA
2) We try to close a project to load a new one
3) We try to use IDEA to check files out of Visual SourceSafe (version 6.0d, build 31222)

Any ideas anybody? Is there a log file we can even look at?

Unless we can resolve these issues we are going to have to down grade back to version 3.x (which worked fine) as these bugs prevent us from doing anything with the new version.

Please run IDEA with a console (idea.bat instead of idea.exe), press Ctrl-Break
at the moment of the lock-up, and post here the stacktrace which is printed
to the console. This will help us diagnose the problem.

That was quick!

The stack trace you want is a bit big, so I've attached it to this message.

Thanks

The lock ups you're experiencing are caused by performance problems with
Visual SourceSafe integration. Many of these problems are fixed in the EAP
build for version 6.0.3, which you can download from:

I'm not sure it's a performance issue in that I can leave IDEA running for half an hour, but it will not refresh the screen or even use any CPU time.

That said, I'll down load the EAP and see if the problem is fixed...... Watch this space!

BTW: This tool http://www.adaptj.com/root/main/download is really great to get
thread-dumps even when running without a console.
