IDEA 5.1 hangs when trying to add a new JSDK

When I open the "JDK & Global Libraries" prefs pane and click on the button to add a new "JSDK", my machine nearly grinds to a halt for a few seconds, and IDEA hangs.

Any clue as to what's going on? I'd greatly appreciate any help!

Thanks,
Dan.

Forgot to mention: I'm running it on a Linux fc4 box.

Great, but does this mean I can download the latest build (perhaps through EAP) and get the fix? Or do I have to wait for the next major release of 5.x?

Thanks for the quick response,
Dan.

Hi Dan,

You can download the latest 5.1.1 EAP here :

The 5.1.1 release candidate build 4188 available at the URL you provided does not incorporate a fix for the bug I mentioned. Also, I get identical "hanging" behavior when I click the "Add Jar/Directory..." buton in the Libraries tab of the Modules preferences dialog box. I am guessing that the identical behavior with the "Add new JSDK" and "Add Jar/Directory" buttons is one, giant, show-stopping bug. Please release a fix for this bug! Thanks.
