Endless looping of scanning files after perforce edit..

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.

Thanks,
--> John

Try to disable "Synchronize on frame activation" option in Settings/General.
This should help in your case and eliminate delays on IDEA's focus gain Mac and Linux users often suffer from.
Do not forget to sync manually though to avoid potential conflicts when file is modified externally and inside IDEA at
the same time.

I tried this and it didn't help at all. Right now, in the background, IDEA is endless looping with syncing of files after a perforce edit.

The window constantly deactivates itself and activates itself and syncs over and over again.

I turned off the sync on frame activation. I even tried turning off the sync after perforce command is done. No help.

Any other ideas. Its really starting to annoy me pretty badly.
