IntelliJ Permgen space problem with Ubuntu Linux 7.04


I'm trying IntelliJ 7.0M1b under linux (Note: I'm only starting with linux). I never had a problem with it under Windows, even on large projects. But now after working for a while I get a Permgen space error. Is there something I can do about it?

This is what I see in the console:
ERROR - llij.ide.plugins.PluginManager - OS: Linux
ERROR - llij.ide.plugins.PluginManager - Last Action: ShowSettings
ERROR - com.intellij.ide.IdeEventQueue - Error during dispatching of java.awt.event.InvocationEvent[INVOCATION_DEFAULT,runnable=com.intellij.diagnostic.DialogAppender$1@6191b0be,notifier=null,catchExceptions=false,when=1182543099715] on sun.awt.X11.XToolkit@4fa6601c

Hello Wim,

Add "-XX:+HeapDumpOnOutOfMemoryError" to startup options.
Next time it happens, compress the dump, and FTP it to:

Create a JIRA with any other relevant info, and of course mention the name
of the uploaded file.
