On Mac OS X 10.6.1 I'm experiencing long-running launchd processes after upgrading to 90.94 and 90.116. I had never seen this behavior on previous Maia EAP releases.
I'm not sure what the triggering behavior is. But while editing Java files my IDE becomes unresponsive. top shows that launchd is taking 90% of the CPU. I don't know what IntelliJ is trying to ask my computer to do, but it renders the IDE unusable for 90-120 seconds when this occurs.
If you have suggestions on how I could instrument this better so you can isolate the root cause, please let me know. This issue makes these last two EAPs extremely difficult for me to use during my daily work.
