Replace Text Dialog issue due to huge strings.

Hi all.
I'm using version 3.0 build#676 (I can't upgrade due to my poor PC ;)
I used Replace Text CTRL-R feature selecting a very huge string, 3500 char about and more.
The problem now is that 'Text to find' field goes out of the dialog frame, is very very long and I can't see the buttons anymore! I understood this is due to the 'Text to find' scroll list that is caching the huge string...
Can I in something manner 'reset' IDEA GUI or I'll be forced to re-install IDEA?
Someone can help?

1. Open %HOME%\.IntelliJIDEA\config\options\other.xml while IDEA is shut
down.
2. Remove XML tag: ... 3. Remove XML tag: http://www.intellij.com

Amazing Maxim! ;)
It was enough deleting from the tag the ]]> regarding the huge string and restart :)
Thank You Very Mutch!

I had this same thing happen to me a while ago. Is there any fix planned for this?
