I have a 64-bit linux system. I keep having this issue where after a couple of hours of running, idea freezes up and cpu goes to 100%. If I don't kill idea in time, my system soon becomes completely unresponsive.
At first I thought it was a problem with my setup (Ubuntu jaunty 64-bit), so I switched to a completely different computer, also 64-bit but different linux distro (Arch 64-bit), and I'm having the same freakin problem.
I have a dual quad xeon with 4GB of ram so this should not be happening.
JDK 1.6_14 on both systems.
Any ideas? Extremely frustrating...
