Using IDEA, I regularly encounter cases where the system is entirely frozen ("not responding" in Windows) for a period of time, sometimes 10 or 15 seconds, sometimes a minute or two or more. Everyone else in our office encounters the same thing.
I saw one or two other mentions of this in the forum, but indirect ones. The other people in our office using IDEA also experience this problem. It seems to occur as memory use approaches maximum (I have max set for 512K).
Is this a known problem? Are there reasonable workarounds?
