Before I go log a Tracker request for this, I thought I'd ask if anybody
else has been seeing this.
Since the 65x builds I've seen my project loads getting slower and
slower to the point where now with 660, loading my project in a newly
started instance IDEA with the standard VM options takes about 5
minutes. 90% of that time is spent in "Updating caches" and "Saving
caches", during which my CPU (PIII 850) is pegged at 100%. I've also had
it hang with no CPU usage during those stages as well and I've only been
able to fix it by some random deletion of either the .iws file or the
cache file in IDEA\system. And if I've deleted the cache file, it can
take 20 minutes to rebuild the cache when I reopen the project.
My project has 3300 Java source files in three hierarchies (two of which
have overlapping packages), 100 configuration and script files and 30
jars in the classpath (some of which are up to 8MB in size).
