Project folder exclusions are scanned on frame activation

Hello,

Using Dianna-9757 (the same holds true for the final 8.1 release) on Mac OS X (10.5.6)
with the Apple JVM (Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 1.6.0_07-b06-57, mixed mode).

My project ends up creating several different build directories (for the api, impl, demos, etc) all
of which I've excluded in the project settings.  However, every time I switch back to IntelliJ from
another task, I see it scanning the content in these excluded folders. 

Do I understand the intent of the exclusion option?   Should it not scan that content, or is it merely
an option to exclude content from the project view?

Hello Ryan,

Content in the excluded directories is not supposed to be scanned. You can
try to take a CPU snapshot of the scanning process to see why exactly the
content is being scanned.

Hi Dmitry,

Actually, I think I've solved my issue.  I added this directories to the exclusion in stages.  So before
they were excluded they had been indexed.  I invalidated my caches, restarted, and that seemed
to do the trick for me.
