Intellij 4.5 using gigs of memory

I have used the later EAP releases and have just installed 4.5. Does anyone else have the memory usage shoot up to as high as 1.5 gig!

This number was attained from the taskmanager. The process it self only seems to be using 50meg (around abouts) but windows' total usage is off the charts!

any ideas welcome

I have found a solution to the problem, or more to the fact, found the cause.

On windows I have several shares that loop back onto my C drive. This allows me to point my ide at several src trees on seperate dev boxes without have to reconfigure my ide every time.

Whenever these shares are present on the computer, and in v4.5 you cause a file chooser to pop up, all goes to pot. Memory will slowly increase until it causes intellij or your patience to break.

So know who has the problem, intellij or the vm....

(This could also explain why noone else seems to have this problem but me, since I doubt that many people use this handy trick!)

Have you thought of changing from shares to subst drives?

I use to do this and it worked fine.
