Modal Dialogs - again

I am wondering if idea developers have a choice to make a dialog modal vs not modal. I am sitting here waiting for a "Dataflow to this" to complete searching and i cannot work in the meantime. i cannot stop it either. This is similar to the decision to use modal dialogs for cvs checkout.


is it possible to create modal dialogs as a last resort for every idea feature in the future? and also, by default, create a cancel button for every modal/blocking dialog? it makes for a bad user experience. i am now going to kill idea 8, since data flow to this is now recursing forever..

thanks for listening,

Trevor

to add insult to injury, killing idea 8 causes a full reparse on the next startup. ouch.

I'm finding that IDEA 8 does a full reparse when restarted even after a controlled exit :(
