I have some strange locking problem going on with the scratch dir. If I blow away my .IntelliJIdea\system\tomcat... directory and launch tomcat 5 in debug mode, everything is great. However, once I stop - it seems a process is holding on to those files. First I see this in the logs:
The scratchDir you specified: C:\.IntelliJIdea\system\tomcat\]]>scratchdir is unusable.
If I hit a page, I get a java.io.FileNotFoundException.
I've tried killing tomcat with shutdown.bat, closing the debuggers window, etc.. However, the files remain locked.
What am I doing wrong.. clearly there is a way to release these files and kill the debugger which is probably locking them, but... ?
