IU9Beta Background Task problem


finished background tasks keep piling up (see screenshot). They are not cancelable nor do they vanish. Eventually I have to restart IU9 because memory limit has been reached. I have been removing the ...system/* files several times to no avail except that initially it seems to works and then eventually  this behaviour begins.

Attaching log, thread dumps and a screenshot.

Anyone with the same problem? And maybe a solution?

Also after installing I wanted to revert and found that of my 11 modules only 5 got their iml files saved in 'projectFilesBackup'.

You're not alone, I found version 90.162 (Idea 9 beta) was completely unusable for exactly the same reason. Whenever I tried to run it I had the same sort of problem as you did. Indexing never seemed to stop and tasks kept piling-up. Invalidating the cache had no effect.

Having just tried it again, after a couple of days of just using build 154, the beta suddenly seems to start without any problems. Maybe the earlier build fixed an indexing problem, or perhaps it's just a random thing. I always have to run 90.154 twice before i can work, as the first time i start it up each day the indexer throws some sort of FileNotFoundException, and infers that the file was there but was locked by another process. I found it was best to close idea and re-start it, then it would open and index without problems. Having already done that today, before trying 90.162, i can't say what would have happened if build 162 was the first build i'd run today. Maybe the problem i get with 154 would cause 162 to get stuck in an endless indexing cycle.

As I said, i was having the same sort of problem as you, until today (I tried to run 162 several times since it was released), and i'm not convinced it won't happen again.

I assumed you were using build 162, as i was. Once I'd got it to run without never-ending indexing, I found other problems and reverted to build 154.
This evening, i've noticed that 90.193 is available, and i haven't had a problem with it so far. If you were using build 162 it might be worth trying 193.

Your assumption was right. 90.193 indeed fixes this problem for mee too. Thx!!

Hmm.. pity ;-(. Does not. After several hours of work with 4 restarts this behaviour starts again with 90.193 too.
