In Idea v3, CVS requests were executed in a separate thread. That was good because my CVS server is remote and requires an SSH handshake plus tunneling for each request (10 seconds up to a minute or two for a big file).
Idea v. 4 now apparently insists on a modal progress dialog. It is ruining my productivity. Eclipse seems to avoid this.
Can I somehow revert to v.3 behavior? I'll happily assume responsibility for any undefined behavior that would happen if I mess with the file while the thread is working.
Please give me back the UI while the request is processing!
