IDEA 5.1 Crashes + Doesnt detect external file changes

Hi

I am noticing some strange behaviour in IDEA 5.1 it seems to suddenly crash. This sometimes seems to happen when I select some text and press ctrl+c. The idea/bin folder also has a log generated saying it cannot obtain the clip board name. Something to do with AWT. Problematic frame seems to be in the ntdll.dll. Sometimes it is msvcrt.dll.

Further idea doenst seem to identify any new files added/old files removed from the source directory. I have to close IDEA and restart to let it see the changes. Closing and repoening the project doesnt help...

Please help... I am thinking of installing an older version to see if the situation still persists.

Any chance that you are running linux and a kernel > 2.6.14?

Hi

:) Yeah im running on top of WinXP SP2. I found the cause of the problem. Nothing to do with IDEA i guess.

I installed Microsoft Application Verifier and specified the IDEA exe as the application to verify. Becasue I needed to verify an app using the Java VM.

Although i uninstalled this verfier it somehow didnt remove the hook it had to IDEA. That casued all this funny behaviour.

I had to reinstall Application Verifier and explicitly remove the hook. Then it was ok... stupid me :)

Anyway thank you for your interest...
