3396 Cannot create new project

Whenever I try to create a new multi-module project everything works fine, only the project name stays empty, consequently the project cannot be saved. From time to time a dialog appears stating: cannot save project null
any workaround known?

There are most probably something like NullPointerExceptions incorrectly
caught but hopefully logged into idea.log.
Can you please look if there is something suspicuous?

Well..there's a problem here ;)

I usually remove the "FILE" appender in the idea log.xml file, to speed things a bit, so it's
obviously not there. However, I wanted to check if I can reproduce it, this time with the
stacktrace, so I reverted to build 3396 (I moved to 3397 after I reported the error), cleared my
system+config dirs, reinstated the "FILE" appender, and tried again.

Now it worked! strange...when I was working with 3396, I can swear I tried this atleast 6-7 times
and got this error. I checked the log file and there are many log statements there, all in "INFO"
level, and no exceptions.

So, now I can't reproduce it. Perhaps clearing the system/config dirs helped. But I will check
periodically to see if it occurs again.

At-least now I know better, and will keep the "FILE" appender in place ;)
