IDEA 2018.3 EAP (latest) - SBT/Scala plugin hangs indexing IVY repo

The latest EAP creates a folder '$HOME' in the project folder and tries to index the complete local .ivy repository - and hangs IntelliJ. Is this a known bug?


Thanks and regards,



The Scala plugin does not create a $HOME file. Maybe some other plugin is doing this?

Local .ivy indexing isn't a new feature and shouldn't hang IntelliJ. Could you create a ticket on with more details?


Mine 2018.3 was indexing .m2 for ages after installation ... it seemed that it somehow cycled ... I had to invalidate caches and restart it and it helped ;)
