Why gem list --remote --all --prerelease for all projects on load?

Hi!  RubyMine 5.4.1, OSX 10.8.  I reloaded RubyMine yesterday, and I found it spun my laptop pretty far out of control in terms of CPU usage for the first few minutes.  When I dug into it, I found that it had launched "gem list --remote --all --prerelease" once for every project, of which I had 6 loaded.  Why does RubyMine do this?  Can I turn it off?  

I ran that command, timed, manually and found these stats:       103.47 real        77.45 user         5.11 sys

Seems like a big ol' waste of time and resources.  I was glad I wasn't on battery at the time.

we do this (in bacground) to be able to show list of all gems when user opens Settings|Ruby SDK and Gems.
This is a comporomise and (as any compromise) has some disadvantages.
I'd suggest you for file a usability issue in our tracker (http://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issues/RUBY) and we will think if we can invent better compromise :)
