I'm experiencing some annoying problems with built-in svn client, it often locks up when talking to svn server. Most often it happens when I try to view file history or run 'annotate' command. It shows something like 'Establishing connection to svn://....' and rolling progressbar, and locks for several minutes.
svn server is hosted in another country and I understand that it sounds like a bad connection, but ordinary console svn client always works reliably and quickly, while IDEA exposes this problem regularly, although not always. The most annoying thing is that 'cancel' button doesn't help, it just becomes disabled and (modal!) progress dialog keeps hanging for another several minutes, so I often have to kill java process in frustration.
Please tell me if this is a known problem and if I can help with debugging.
