general performance woes, inluding 2210

the last couple of weeks or so i have noticed severe performance problems.

- typing an expression, all of a sudden, IDEA freezes for 60 seconds

- trying to compile - only 1 file changes, IDEA freezes showing the "parsed one file" dialog. again, neighborhood of 60 seconds.

- debugging - i think that's been covered pretty well.

i'm using 2210 now, and the debugging might be better, but the others are not.

this is not a GC issue - the lock/unlock does not affect the memory slider, and currently it's only about 50% (66M of 127M) so it wouldn't be taking a long time doing a GC anyway.

this is with 1GB of RAM and -Xms128m -Xmx256m

The timings you're talking about are just awkard. It shouldn't go that way under any circumstances.
It would be great to have some thread dumps taken while IDEA seem to be frozen. And also suggest to try cleaning up
caches folder in IDEA's system folder.
