Safe delete hangs on OS X, build 3419

I have tried deleting a file from my source tree using safe delete several times now with build 3419. Each time it hangs the IDE. The symptoms are that the "searcing..." progress bar stops advancing (it is at different percentages each time) but the memory bar keeps growing and shrinking, staying between 51M and 64M.

I just went back to check on the safe delete and it seem that it is actually still running, but very, very slowly.

It seems you tweaked xmx to something like -Xmx64M, which is not enough for
the operation like this so IDE spends most of the time in garbage collection.
Try to set a higher value.

I did tweek it, but it was to a minimum of 128 and a maximum of 512. The following is a cut and past from info.plist:

-Xms128m -Xmx512m -Xbootclasspath/p:../lib/boot.jar -ea -Xrunyjpagent:port=10100
