Open in New Frame: unable to start monitor

Answered

When I try to open a 2nd project in a new frame, jIdea starts to open the other frame, then gives me a Start Failed Dialog saying
Unable to start the monitor on 4445
An other instance is problaly using the same port
clicking OK lets things continue normally.
This has been happening since I upgraded to v5 (now 5.0.2)

any suggestions?

I believe that's the Log4JMonitor plugin. There's a bug in it that tries to
use the same port to monitor logs for every project. If you just dismiss the
dialog, it doesn't effect the monitor that's already started or your
project. You just can't monitor logs in the second project.

Great! uninstalling Log4JMonitor plugin made the problem go away, so your diagnosis seems to be correct. I wasnt using the monitor anyway, so no loss.

Thank you!

This bug causes suspension of intellij in version 2016.3 (newest eap) when I try to open new project. In my machine it is impossible to click "ok". When i stop Log4jMonitor and open new project problem does not occurs.
