Disable refreshing VCS history



I use subversion as a VCS. Whenever I update a project or file, phpstorm starts to refresh the VCS history. This generally takes at least 10-20 minutes to complete and puts CPU usage at 100% on one core, which makes the UI incredibly slow for anything else.

Can I disable this refreshing process? Or limit how often it occurs? It really seems so unnecessary and it's limiting my ability to be productive.

Do you keep the files on the fast local drive? Can you provide a CPU snapshot for this problem? See http://devnet.jetbrains.net/docs/DOC-192.

I have large number of projects and slow VPN connection, and honestly I see totally no reason why I would need to refresh SVN history. Why cannot this be disabled?

Harley Mellifont The IDE is refreshing the local status of the files to correctly show them in the Local changes and other respective places therefore this process cannot be disabled. 
Overall it is a known issue, please vote:
