I right click on a file and then select perforce edit.
Once I do this it does a p4 edit on the file and then attempts to synchronize. IDEA will then activate and deactivate itself over and over again while popping up floater windows saying "Scanning files.."
It will do this in an endless loop forever it seems. I am on MacOS X (Panther) and I am running the release version 4.5.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I did scan the bug database and didn't find anything like this filed so I am hoping that there is some workaround to the problem.
