Disclaimer: Not a rant. Just trying to collect information.
More often than in 2.6 I'm seeing a lot of what appear to be application hangs that usually result in the system exiting all open applications.
The usual pattern is that I perform some operation (there does not appear to be a pattern in what operation triggers the event) and then I'm presented the "spinning pizza". In addition to IDEA not responding, the Finder and other apps don't respond as well. After a minute or two, the Finder will apparently "reset" and display itself with any opened applications having been quit.
Most recently (today) this happening after I closed TextEdit to commit by changes with the Perforce Submit external tool.
Is anyone else seeing this or is it time to try a re-install to clean things up?
In the 2.6 days, if IDEA was having a bad time it would usually just quit without warning but never took the whole system with it. That was under Java 1.3 and 1.4.
Any tips/tricks on how to debug/diagnose the problem would also be appreciated.
