Settings dialog freezes during searches

Hello,
I'm experiencing an annoying behavior in 14.1.2 (But this existed in the version before as well) - When opening the Settings dialog and searching there are freezes. I cannot type anything nor select any of the menus.
Anyone else seeing this?
Thanks,
Guy

How long are these freezes? Please provide the thread dumps, both automatic and via jstack: https://intellij-support.jetbrains.com/entries/23348667 .

IDEA freezes for about 10 seconds or maybe even more.
I attached the files you requested

Probably related to https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IDEA-19189 . I'll ping the responsible developer.

This defect was opened in 2008, are you sure it's the same?
For me then happens when opening the settings dialog, and usually when I'm using the search inside. It's not limited to the keymap menu

Not 100% sure, but the issue is still open and the dump looks similar.

Does the issue persist if you move/rename IDEA config/system folders and start with the defaults? https://intellij-support.jetbrains.com/entries/23358108 .

I could try. Is it ok if I first export my settings and re-import afterwards? Otherwise this will be very inconvenient

You can just rename the config folder back to its original name. config_backup => config.

OK, it seems this IS related to the KeyMap menu.
It's just that most times when using the search there's a result in the KeyMap menu so I get there and then I get the freeze.
Is there a solution for this?

Does it still happen with all the default settings?

Yes.
But it doesn't happen for projects with few modules. For my main project with ~400 modules it's very bad...

Try running under a more recent Oracle JDK 1.8 version and revert .vmoptions (https://intellij-support.jetbrains.com/entries/23395793) file contents to the defaults. Does it make any difference?

I can't revert to the default vmoptions. It limits the heap to about 750MB or less which is unacceptable for my project. I sometimes reach 2GB or 1.5GB

The JDK 1.8_45 did not help so here's your CPU snapshot... Hope it helps.

Thanks, we have a ticket open for this issue in the issue tracker, but it's private for some reason. The issue is known and our developers are working on it.

It may be specific to Linux and certain window managers.

OK, I'll be waiting for the solution.
Thanks for the help
