3436: Not quite done for OS-X 10.4.2 ?

Just upgraded to 5.0. When I double-click a source file in project view, IDEA 5.0 crashes on OS-X 10.4.2. Calling up the same file via CTL-E (least recently used) works fine. Build 3431 does not work, either.

Crash log indicates, that it has something to do with fonts:
...
0x9deaf000 - 0x9e0c2fff libawt.jnilib /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/1.5.0/Libraries/libawt.jnilib
0x9e13d000 - 0x9e18cfff libfontmanager.jnilib /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/1.5.0/Libraries/libfontmanager.jnilib
0x9e212000 - 0x9e21ffff liblaf.jnilib /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/1.5.0/Libraries/liblaf.jnilib

Any idea?

Thanks,
Peter

Peter it works fine here. You might want to toss out your caches, make
sure you don't have any added plugins which might be causing this.

This is what I discovered:
- IDEA 4.5 and IDEA 5 both crash upon opening certain (see below) files
- the behaviour is identical under JDK 1.4.2 and JDK 1.5 (IDEA 5.0 only)
- the behaviour is identical on my G4 Powerbook and Dual G5
- OS-X 10.4.2 on both machines
- files that crash have "@anything" in Javadoc comments
- when I type "@" in a Javadoc comment, IDEA crashes when I select anything from the code completion popup or continue manual typing
- all files that crash IDEA seem sane and can be opened with Eclipse/BBEdit etc

I already went through the usual routines (fix permission, clear font caches etc). This is really funky. Can anybody confirm that Javadoc comments work? Any other ideas?

Thanks,
Peter

Looks like a similar issue as in this thread:
http://www.intellij.net/forums/thread.jsp?forum=22&thread=153139&message=4892316
It seems a broken font on your system is crashing the jvm. That thread
contains a small program to locate broken fonts, perhaps you can use it
also. And you probably should submit a bugreport to Apple.

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction, guys. I was finally able to solve the problem.

I checked for corrupted fonts (as suggested here in the forum) but did not find anything. Finally I removed all Chinese, Korean and Japanese fonts from /System/Library/Fonts. When I finally removed the AquaKana fonts, it worked.

Here is a list of my working set /System/Library/Fonts:

Courier.dfont
Geneva.dfont
HelveLTMM
Helvetica LT MM
Helvetica.dfont
Keyboard.dfont
LastResort.dfont
LucidaGrande.dfont
Monaco.dfont
Symbol.dfont
Times LT MM
Times.dfont
TimesLTMM
ZapfDingbats.dfont

I also emptied /Library/Fonts completely because I manage those fonts with a Font Manager. It also has some funky stuff in it (Hei... etc).

I find it strange that not more people run into this problem with a standard Tiger 10.4.2 installation. I explicitly excluded all Asian fonts during installation.

Thanks again for your help.
Peter
