Here's a weird one. For some time now I've been experiencing a problem where IntelliJ 9.0.1 opens to a grey background and the 'Open Recent' menu option won't open a project. It allows you to pick one but doesn't do anything once you have. You can use the open menu option to navigate to a project and then open it and all works correctly after that. I just upgraded to 9.0.2 today and on the first start I got the welcome screen in IntelliJ and the 'Open Recent' option worked. On the next startup I got a grey background and the 'Open Recent' was broken again.
What can I do to track this problem down and resolve it?
I'm on OS/X 10.6.3. I don't remember when I started seeing the problem initially but its possible it was in the save period that I upgraded from 10.6.2 to 10.6.3. Since I initially noticed the problem I've purchased a new machine and installed IntelliJ on that machine. The problem is still being exhibited.
