Has something changed in 14.1.5 in regards to the modality of VCS refreshes?
I've had a long occurring problem with IDEA and our svn server in that at least once a day IDEA gets stuck refreshing changes. In previous versions of IDEA this wasn't a big issue and I could ignore it as a background task as other tasks continued to work around it.
But with 14.1.5 this stuck state seems to cripple the IDE. Tasks are now stacking up behind it, I cannot run make for example, or run a test. But also the editor and IDE seem to have become less functional. The code rendering not longer functions and I cannot access IDEA settings, esp the VCS settings. The setting panes remain blank?
The unending refresh issues seem to have been around since 2010? https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IDEA-54960
The stuck Refreshing VCS jobs also cannot be stopped. https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IDEA-144553 (stop button doesn't function).
Theres no stacktrace in the idea log. Nothing to point to why or when VCS gets stuck - but I'm guessing its a timeout. Its a very large project (over 1.2gb) and a even more massive svn.
With both issues appearing in 14.1.5 this is a serious regression in the IDE behavior for me.
