Crash when scrolling Follow
I'm curious to know if there are other people having this problem.
There are two of us here that are using IntelliJ IDEA on Linux and we're having some major problems with IDEA crashing completely when we scroll.
I first thought that this only happened when using the scroll wheel on my mouse but recently I found out that was not the case because IDEA crashed when I scrolled by clicking on the scrollbar and dragged it.
I sent a bug report to Sun supplying the hs_err*.log file that was generated but I recently got a reply from them saying that Java isn't supported on my platform (Debian Linux/X.org/KDE) and pointed me to a list of supported configurations (which for Linux were all commercial distributions).
Now I want to ask the community: is there anyone else having this problem? Most importantly: is there anyone else running a "Sun Java supported" Linux configuration that could please report this to get it fixed.
This seems to happen a lot with IDEA but my guess is (since the JVM crashes and produces the hs_err*.log file) that it's a JVM bug. I don't recall having had this problem with other Java Swing applications but then again, I don't use many of them. So I'm sending the error log file with this post and I sincerely hope that someone can shed some light on this mess because it really is extremely frustrating.

I've seen this on Mandrake 2005 LE.
However, I run IDEA on an unsupported JVM (the i586 1.6 early access releases) so I didn't bother reporting it.
If I use the wheel to scroll down, after about 8 scrolls the VM dies completely.
I've never seen it happen when using anything other than the wheel to scroll.
It's also not 100% repeatable for me.
Here's the first bit of my hserr log...
(Why does the "preformatted" button sumit the form???)
I don't expect JetBrains to do anything about this, just posting to help the OP.
I am having same problem on FC3 with 1.6_b45 and I ignored it thinking it's unsupported JVM issue. Today one co-worker managed to create that repeatedly with 1.5.04
I keep getting this on Red Hat 9.

I started having this problem right after installing an NVIDIA card under fedora core 3 with sun jvm version 1.5.0_04. I never had a problem prior so I figured it had to do with the new video card, I seemed to have fixed it by adding the line:
Option "RenderAccel" "true"
to the Device section for the card in xorg.conf.
I guess the problem is somewhere in software rendering and this gets around it.
I have RenderAccel set to true and the problem still exists. I've submitted this to Sun and they replied:
Java does not support gentoo. I recommend checking if the behavior exists on one of the supported configurations at http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.5.0/system-configurations.html.
Another option is to ask JetBrains to investigate this issue further. Since IntelliJ appears to trigger this failure, the developers at JetBrains will be able to examine their product, isolate the cause of the behavior, and, if necessary, provide us with a detailed report.
Same her on all accounts.
I tried setting "RenderAccel" to true but it doesn't work.
I would very much like to see the JetBrains team try this out in one of the "supported" configurations as reported by Sun.
For me, one of the best ways to reproduce this problem is to open up a rather long and complicated diff window and scroll around that for a while. Usually that triggers the problem within a minute (NOTE: I said usually... not quite always).
Success!!! I've spent the last day trying to install a SuSE 9.2 on a computer and getting Gnome up on it.
I ran IDEA and the crash happened after just a little scrolling!
So now I'm going to submit that to Sun and see what they have to say about that.
I bet they'll tell you 'report to JetBrains'. Nobody wants to work :)
I've also created a new bug report for IDEA on this. I'm hoping that the Jetbrains team might be willing to help us with this by either helping Sun figure out the problem or putting some pressure on them to fix this.
