992 compiles WAY more than it should

I have a project with about 5000 classes. I have a test case that has zero dependencies on it. If I make a change (add a space to the end of a line) and do a Make, over 500 classes get recompiled. I would expect only one class to get recompiled, the one I touched. Idea starts off compiling just one class but upon searching for dependencies (of which there should be a grand total of ZERO) Idea somehow discovers over 500 files that it must recompile. This is DRASTICALLY slowing me down as this obliterates the whole philosophy of Test First.

I've found with 977 (just downloaded 992) that I had to do a "rebuild project" once (after initially creating the project), otherwise it would continuiously try to recompile almost everything.

Maybe this will help ya out with 992 as well.

Hi Eric.

Did you file a bug for that one? This was a real pain in 977 ....

Yes, we also experienced this problem and are now investigating. We'll fix
it soon.
