PRoblems after 12.1 Upgrade

I upgraded to 12.1 this morning and started having various problems. The first problem was slowdown/sluggishness. I blamed my Mac at first because I had a long file copy running in a separate workspace window. However, after the copy finished the problems continued. I started an Android debug session and set a break point. When I went to edit the breakpoint I found that I could not clear the condition checkbox so I hard-coded the literal "true" as my condition to ensure the breakpoint would always hit. I then finished debugging and went to stop the debugger. The debugger hang indefinitely. This is a problem I'd noticed prior to the upgrade and I usually reinstall the apk to free the debug process. This time when I clicked the run configuration to compile and run my app it hang indefinitely, I had to forcibly quit Idea. I'm relaunching it now but I wanted to know if anyone else was facing similar issues.

I was also having problems with sluggishness on my Mac.

Both IntelliJ and the separate java process for the external build had sustained high CPU usage and there were very noticeable lags when typing/editing files.

I have a MacBook Pro with 8GB 1333 MHz, 2.5 GHz quad core i7, SSD, -Xmx1280m

I reverted to 12.0.4 and things are back to normal.

Gents,

Could you provide cpu snapshots for the analysis?

The problem with condition checkbox is known and fixed.

I noticed the sluggishness too. It seems to be a bit better now.

I'm on a mac too, and my laptop fans have been working overtime since after the update.  It "feels" like it's the compilation phase in my play framework 2 process.  I think I've got two processes compiling every time I make a change: the play one and idea.  They seem to collide sometimes too and I have to make a modification to a file again to trigger the compiler to run.  I run in "~ run" mode and didn't have this problem in 12.0.x.

I don't mind doing this.  How long should we run the snapshot?

Just enough for the lag being observed, e.g. 20 seconds from the point when it starts would be enough.

Here's a snapshot.  I've mentioned this on another thread, but it appears to be the play framework auto compiler running at the same time that idea is triggering the compiler.  They sometimes seem to hit a race condition and what is actually compiled is not what you think it is and sometimes I'll see no class def found errors (presumably because the other compiler is recompiling it?).

I tried attaching it, but even though the submission form says the max size is 15MB, I got a request size too large error.

Here's a temporary link to the snapshot: https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B3BAKf96KcKwRUJaZ2VkTjNvbFk/edit?usp=sharing

I too am seeing this problem, right after 12.1.3 -- I think 12.1.2 was OK.  It's especially painful doing GUI form editing -- very laggy.  I downgraded to 12.0, and it's back to being fast again.
