Why won't idea kill my app?

Whenever my app hits an exception inside a loop (ie it keeps hitting it over
and over) IDEA (7718) stops responding. I can't shut down my app within IDEA
and I end up having to kill IDEA and restart. This is annoying and seems
like a bug. Is it? I've seen this in older builds of IDEA but it seems worse
with this one.

If you are displaying the exception, probably is the same thing what I've
posted some time ago.

>public static void main(String[] args){

while (true){
System.err.println("Another way to crash Idea");
