OK, this is a real pain. It's been happening pretty much daily since
4.5 came out for me, I've posted stack traces here, I've checked it out
and reported when 4.5.1 came out, and it still hangs.
I'm getting really tired of restarting IntelliJ and waiting to see when
it last auto saved my files to find out what I've lost.
So how should I report a bug like this in such a way that someone will
bother to look at the stack trace and see if they can work out what's
happening with it? Sure it would be nice if someone else was getting
the same bug, but I figured that posting a stack trace would be enough
to warrant someone at JetBrains looking at it.
OK, so I'm particularly frustrated right now which may not be the best
time to write, but what the heck, the groups quiet anyway.
So basically the problem is: When I switch back to IntelliJ from some
other app, usually an email client, but not always, IntelliJ will stop
repainting the screen leaving a grey rectangle for that particular app,
what's particularly weird is that other parts of the IntelliJ window
will paint just fine.
It doesn't seem to matter how long I wait, the IntelliJ app never
recovers (I've waited 20 minutes or so in the past and it never recovers).
I've run with no third party plugins and it still breaks, though it does
appear to break less frequently.
This only started happening to me very late in the 4.0 beta.
There is a long stack trace back somewhere in the newsgroup, it's gone
from my archive here but it might still be online.
So any suggestions?
