Fisrt off, I'm really liking 996. I don't know if it's my imagination or what, but performance seems to be significantly better.
Pertinent info on my setup:
Linux kernel 2.4.20
AMD Athlon 1800XP
So my machine isn't a speedster but it's generally more than enough for my day to day coding.
My concern in this post regards the oddities that occur when the applciation first receives focus after having been in the background. While the removal of the Checking Modified Files dialog was a step in the right direction, it still doesn't feel quite right.
Here are the symptoms:
1) Immediatly after bringing the Idea window into focus, the app automatically loses and then regains focus. This is evidenced by the title bar greying out (as it does when a different window is active) and then regaining it's color. It's almost as if the Checking Modified Files dialog still exists and grabs focus, but is just invisible.
2) About 60% of the time, when I click on any control in the Idea window immediately after bringing the app into focus, I get an error beep and nothing happens. It's the same beep and lack of reposnse I would get, for instance, if I had the Open File dialog opened and tried to click somewhere in the main app. This is yet another indication of the Checking Modified Files dialog still existing, but simply being invisible.
Maybe not everyone works the way I do, but I move in and out of the Idea window a ton during my work day and the delays and unresponsivness of the window after bringing it back up are driving me frikkin batty. :) My associate in the office adjacent to mine can testify to my near constant cursing throughout the day as I get an error beep damn near every time I re-enable the Idea window and try to click on something.
Is anyone else experiencing this?
