Scala shell problem: Argument list too long

When I try to run the Scala Shell on OSX I get a red bubble from the Run Console tab with the following message:

   ! Error running Scala Console:
    Cannot run program      "/System/Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/1.6.0.jdk/Contents/Home/bin/java":      error=7, Argument list too long     

I am using a build from the git repostory downloaded on 24Febuary, and I think the latest Scala. In any case I have been having this problem for a while now.

Where should I look to find out what the exact nature of the problem is? Any ideas what the solution might be?


can't really help, but if you google for "error=7, Argument list too long" you'll find that this is actually an os problem or one of the implementation of java.lang.UNIXProcess. e.g.

maybe you can reduce your arg list somehow?


It would help if I could find out what the argument list was... Perhaps I'll need to debug IntelliJ to find that out...
