Long file names crash IDEA

I've been using JAXB today, and come across a real annoyance today.

Every time I built the project, IDEA crashed. This is version 4.5 and Irida. No exceptions. No warnings. It just completely disappeared.

What was really weird, was that when I ran our Maven script it a completely separate process, IDEA did the same thing. Crashed without even so much as an apology.

Turns out that, this file appeared in the Bin directory:


An unexpected exception has been detected in native code outside the VM.
Unexpected Signal : EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION (0xc0000005) occurred at PC=0x34CFE9A

NOTE: We are unable to locate the function name symbol for the error
just occurred. Please refer to release documentation for possible
reason and solutions.

What I think is happening, is that JAXB is generating a filename that is causing Irida to choke. When the file appears in the project, this Filewatcher thingy has a look at it, and has a heart attack.

The file that JAXB generated was:


Yes, I know it's ridiculous, but it can compile, so it would be nice if IDEA could actually stay running if its in the project.

Try deleting FileWatcher2K.dll. IDEA should still run fine without it (with
the exception of the autosyncing).
