Idea 8.1 on Mac not showing Project View

I have IDEA 8.1 for the Mac (OsX 10.5.6) and I cannot get it to show the project view.  Without the project view I can't see ANYTHING.  It had been working fine for a while, and once in a while it will go back to working, but mostly it doesn't work. I have screenshots of the problem...keep on reading!

Here's a project called Merchantize8 that I actually created in IDEA 8.1 while it was still working for me.  If I open it in my old IDEA 7.0.4 (also for the Mac) it looks exactly as I expect it:  http://cli.gs/jYAd1S  (screenshot).  The Project View is open by default, and if I ever were to lose the project view, I can always open it from the 'Window' menu item.

Here is what happens when I open the same project in IDEA 8.1:  http://cli.gs/R2svUJ (screenshot).  It comes up completely blank, and with no access to the Project View.

Your help is appreciated!

Hello Greg,

Please try rebuilding the caches (File | Invalidate Caches).

If it doesn't help, please file a JIRA issue (at http://www.jetbrains.net/jira)
with attached idea.log (from ~/Library/Caches/IntelliJIDEA8x/logs)
