hg-checklink-* what the...


having a huge problem with phpStorm at the moment.
If I integrate mercurial into the ide everytime I open a project phpStorm generates those random hg-checklink-XYZ files, guess there temporary mercurial files for scanning but here comes the problem:
Whenever phpStorm generates those files the IDE gets stuck/freezes while scanning it won't proceed untill I delete those files via shell.

Any idea how to fix this?

Greets & thanks

Hi Alex,

Do you use your mercurial repository locally or it is located on a shared drive?
Check this thread, it looks similar to the problem you described: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/5213876/mercurial-hg-checklinks-recursive-symlink-over-nfs-samba-sshfs-network-drive
