Watch out, it doesn't catch duplicates... at least not that I can see! I submitted a bug twice to test the error reporter and both these bugs are dups and the same:

The bug I filed for Error reporting is this:

http://www.intellij.net/tracker/idea/viewSCR?publicId=16173

So do a search first for now before you submit it automatically. It's a little easier to find the bugs though since the stack trace will be in the body of the message, so search for words in the first 2 lines.

It does catch a lot of duplicates, but those two seem to be too
different. They end the same way but one of them has a dozen additional
lines in the middle.

I've also seen duplicates where recursion is used -- one of the traces
contains 5 recursive calls before the bug is triggered while the other
one contains 8 calls, or something like that.

Hum that's interesting, I didn't really see that, so what happens if you do get a duplicate? Does it tell you it's been reported?

Your entry - comment + stacktrace - gets added as a reply to the
original post, and IDEA opens your browser on the thread, where you can
see you're not alone.
