Executing sourcesafe hangs IDEA when sourcesafe database not accessible

Executing sourcesafe commands like "Check Out" causes IDEA to completely hang if a network connection to the VSS database cannot be made. Even after reconnecting the network connection IDEA is still stuck and the only way to resume work is to kill IDEA and restart.

Everything works fine when the VPN connection to sourcesafe is established before running IDEA and the sourcesafe commands.
