Using Intellij 8.1.3, Windows 7 build 7100, 4 GB RAM, SSD, Core 2 Duo
A typical search - looking for "hide" in files, limited to .js extension. There are 810 js files in this project, 127 of which contain that word. Intellij maxes out one core and is unresponsive for a few minutes then runs out of memory (currently set to 800MB).
Agent Ransack performs the equivalent search in literally 2 seconds.
What am I doing wrong? This doesn't happen for every search - it seems limited to searches that have more than a handful of results.
