Still always annoying flashing/spinning floppy access in file browser for build 813...

Well, I bet the subject is clear enough on this. I wished this would be
addressed somehow in a general manner, so this problem doesn't hit in again
and again in newer builds. BTW, IDEA is the only Java IDE I actually know
of, which suffers from this problem, even all of those I have in use share
all the same base JDK.

Yes, this nerves me too. On each directory change IDEA (or the file
chooser?) seems to search all my drives.

So it's not just me then ....

Yes, just ran into it; it's getting very annoying ....

Is there already a bug report for this?

It's not an IDEA specific issue I don't think. I've had this happen with other java apps too. Maybe it is something they can control I don't know. I just turn off floppy access from the bios since I never use floppies, and last I checked I don't even think I have a floppy in the house :)

I pretty much believe that this is an IDEA problem and how they reuse the
FileChooser stuff etc. I have beside IDEA versions of JBuilder and Eclipse
running, which are also hosted on the same JDK/JRE and these don't have
these problems.

You are a lucky one, if you don't have a build in floppy drive in your
computer, related to the mentioned annoying IDEA problem.

Think of it as force-feeback, directory navigation! :)

It may be an IDEA problem, but it's not only an IDEA.

There are many bugs in the BugParade about filechooser and floppy/cd drives.

http://developer.java.sun.com/developer/bugParade/bugs/4748128.html - will
not be closed :)

http://developer.java.sun.com/developer/bugParade/bugs/4089199.html - has a
workaround for bug when using jfilechooser with filesystemviews:

class FileSystemRoot extends File {
public FileSystemRoot(File f) {
super(f,"");
}

public FileSystemRoot(String s) {
super(s);
}

public boolean isDirectory() {
return true;
}
}


And there are many more...

I already know these Sun java bug parade entries.

However, as I said before, if the other Java IDE/tool vendors can overcome
and fix this JDK problem for their IDEs, IntelliJ IDEA should too fix it.
