Synchronizing files pegs CPU(s)?

I'm running IDEA 7.0M1b on OS X (10.4.10) and it frequently pegs my dual-core CPU for "synchronizing files". The IDE locks up as well, for several minutes at a time. I don't know why it does this or what it's doing. Does anyone else see this, and how to turn this off, or at least make it less intrusive?

Thanks,

Nick.

Yes, I've seen some very misbehaved Synching. However, the most recent EAP, build 7041, is better with Synch'ing.

You might want to vote on this to help make Synch even better:

Watch the SVN log and see if that gives you any clues. This happened to my workmate, and watching the log, he could see that it was doing some really strange things, trying to synchronise outside the trunk folder of the project, for example (we have the standard project/trunk/etc hierarchy). In the end what fixed it for him was re-checking out the whole project, but starting from trunk, not the project dir.

We also saw it trying to synch on the .svn directories, doing some really weird things. See if the log and a re-checkout helps.

Thanks for your replies.

Silly question but what's the SVN log and where is it? Are you referring to subversion, because we don't use it at my company, we use Perforce. Or something else?

Ah, sorry, I am referring to Subversion - I'm not sure how much of the functionality is shared between VC implementations. The log is the standard IDEA log, for SVN at least there are some properties you can turn on (-Djavasvn.log=true -Djavasvn.log.trace=true), I don't know if Perforce has corresponding ones. There seem to be some general problems with the VC synching at the moment, so the problems we saw might occur with Perforce as well, I don't know.
