The single most frustrating 'feature' in 5.x

I switch to intellij from whatever else I was doing (looking at our bug
tracking system for example), press Ctrl-N so get the find class popup
and start typing some class name and the app just sits there. It
doesn't seem to be garbage collecting it just pauses.

Then I see that the file that was open under the popup has been checked
out and that whatever I typed after pressing Ctrl-N has been typed into
the file.

This has happened three or four times a day recently, I'm on build 3489
but I'm pretty sure it's been in every 5.x version. It didn't happen
with 4.5.

Has anyone else seen this?

Yes, it seems like an asynchronous dialog, i.e. if you can do it fast
enough you will get text entered wherever you were before pressing Ctrl+N.

I agree it's annoying.

same here. What's very bad is that, few times it happened to me without
noticing, so I checked in "corrupted" (broken, invalid) spring config XML
files.
this should be addressed soon...
