PyCharm 2.6.3 on ubuntu 10.04 impossibly slow


I am running ubuntu10.04 64 bit in virtualbox in mac os lion.  I have 2.3 GHz intel core i5, with 8GB 1333 MHz DDR3.  I have dedicated 6GB to the VM.

A performance snapshot, shows that if I just touch pycharm in the slightest way, the cpu usage goes straight to 100%.  RAM looks unchanged, always hovering around 18% of 6GB.

I've gone through various upgrades of pycharm over the last 2 years and this seems to randomly happen at different versions.


I just also tried this on a native ubuntu10.04 32bit with 1.5Ghz dual core and 3GB ram.  Works fine.
