Yesterday IDEA crashed royally on me, it wiped out all
the configuration files and the projects file. Not funny.
At some point it started popping up error messages saying
that it cannot save the project. Eventually I had to kill

file was gone as well. I had to reinstall IDEA and recreate
Checking the log file it seems that for some reason IDEA
run out of file handles and could not open any more files.
When saving the project is IDEA first deleting the existing
config files and then creating the new ones? That would be
a very bad strategy.
I was running IDEA 3.0, build 682, under Windows 2000. Here
is the list of plugins I had installed:
Did anybody else had a similar problem?
