Nasty firewall popups when launching IDEA

hi,

i have this problem since snow leopard i think. i always get popups when launching IDEA asking me to permit network connections. sometimes it's just one or two of those dialogs, sometimes they sparkle up so i have to press dozens of times to close all of them. attached is a screenshot (sorry it's in german. basically the text says : "Do you wish that "Intellij IDEA 9.0.2. CE.app" accepts incoming network connection?". i occasionally get these for other applications such as SuperCollider server, although that is rarely the case, so that leaves me thinking it is an OS X problem.

All those apps have permission according to my firewall settings so OS X really shouldn't ask. you can see in the other screenshot that in my security preferences, both java and intellj idea have permission to establish network connections...

any clues? i was suspecting a problem of OS X with java, but other apps like cyberduck don't have this problem, so maybe it's something can be fixed for IDEA...?

thanks, -sciss-

at least more people have the same problem with other apps:

with no apparent fixes. will need to post on the apple forum i guess.... aren't the guys at apple using any firewalls themselves?!
