IDEA leaks handles on win XP - again

I have had Selena #6913 running for 9 days and the handle count is currently 270000. Even if idea is idle, the handle count rises quite steadily 2 handles at a time in around five second period. The handle types are ~66% threads, ~16%semaphores, ~16%event, the rest are various handles like file handles.

Anybody else noticed something like this?

The handle count seems to rise steadily even on a fresh start of IDEA, no projects open.

How are you monitoring handle counts?

You can see the handle count from windows task manager, you just need Handles column to be set visible. Or use something like sysinternals process explorer

IDEA 7.0 M1a uptime is 2 days 18 hours....handle count is 2,273,631 and increasing. To put it into perspective Google Desktop's crawler is at 24 million....what are handles anyway?
