[BUG - 5.1] IDEA crash on project create

I have just installed v5.1 in a new directory and it pickup up all my IDEA settings etc nicely. No problems at all with the update but whenever I try to create a new plugin project IDEA simply crashes when I click the "Finish" button.

No error, no messages, just closes silently. This never happened in 5.0.2 so it must be new to this build.

Any VM crash dumps in the bin\ directory or logs in system\log subdirectory
of the main IDEA settings dir?

Hi Dmitry,

Thanks for the quick response. Here are two clean logs for you (everything I have from start to crash).

Many thanks in advance,
Rob :)

It's a filewatcher crash - not a new problem in 5.1. As far as we know, it
happens only intermittently. Does it happen for you every time when you create
a new project? Do you have any global libraries, and does the crash go away
if you remove them?

Yes it happens every time. I never got it in 5.0.2 though. I'll try removing a few globals and get back to you.

Thanks,
Rob

Does it always end up with FileWatcher frames being on top of the stack?

Looking at the offset in FileWatcher.dll, I'd say this is the same as

What I would like to know still is, if it is indeed a crash caused by file watcher, and not a result of memory corruption caused by some other native library. Could you please verify the problem persists without Perforce plugin?

I'm not using Perforce at all (is the dll loaded and active anyway?), and I can't really
reproduce the crash, so unfortunately I can't help that much here :(

Hi Eugine,

I don't even have the Perforce plugin installed. I removed all VC plugins except for CVS (since it's required by TMate) and Subversion (which I use).

I haven't taken a look at removing global libraries yet, did you still want me to try that?

Cheers,
Rob
