MacOS: Finder needs to be running?

In RC VII, IDEA refuses to boot if the Finder is not running... the launch icon will bounce for a while and eventually quit, with nothing written to the logs. I use PathFinder as a Finder replacement, and often unload Finder to save memory. Is this a problem for anyone else?


Looks like I jumped to conclusions. The long startup times don't appear to be tied to the Finder; they're intermittent. Does anyone else notice dramatically longer startup times for this build?


We use finder and startup time is zippy. I understand that you want to save memory, but it seems a bit weird that you'd expect IDEA to work with a non standard finder.
