searching for revisionNumber...

That is what my compilation window claims for ENORMOUS amounts of time when compiling after updating from CVS. Compiling the actual source files takes the normal amount of time, and then it starts "searching for revisionNumber..." and the progress indicator goes from 0 to 100% over and over and over.... It eventually finishes, but literally takes hours. The CVS projects contain about 6600 files. What is Intellij actually doing when this message is displayed? Can I turn it off? I need to do something, as I can't live with it this way...

revisionNumber"?

I have upgraded to the latest EAP release (2128) and have collected 5 thread dumps from Intellij while it displays the "searching for revisionNumber..." message.

The dumps are attached in 5 separate files.

Analyzing the dumps seems to indicate that "Compile Thread" is clearly the one (as you'd expect) performing the time intensive work. The AWT Thread is the only other thread performing work (in this case, redrawing the progress indicator).

Hopefully you can figure this one out. At least the progress indicator counts faster in 2128 vs. 4.03, though I can't determine if the process is any slower or faster than it was before.
