I've got Ubuntu Linux and Sun Java 1.6.
I've created new "Plugin Module" project and want to add new action for it. But "Add action dialog" hangs up when it
goes to "GUI Registration" step. Nothing helps, except "killall java" in cmd.
could you please generate thread dump (http://wiki.netbeans.org/GenerateThreadDump) when ide freezes and attach?
Note that this panel does need to check the target platform for possible locations to install the new action (shown in
various combo boxes), which can take a little while as it scans layers of existing modules.
No more information.

I'm experiencing a similar issue.
I'm trying to follow the plugin quick start tutorial.
I'm using NetBeans 6.9.1 on Fedora.
When attempting to create a new Action,
the GUI Registration dialog appears, but then NB hangs up
during populating the dialog.
It doesn't seem to always hang at exactly the same spot.
Usually it hangs trying to populate the Position field of
Global Menu Item, but sometimes it makes it a little further.
Occasionally it will populate the dialog but the buttons
Sometimes a warning popup dialog appears saying
"Folder org already exists." If I click "OK" than
the dialog will populate and I can proceed.
Sorry, 6.9.1 is too old to report bugs against; 7.1 is the current release (with 7.0 and 7.0.1 intervening).
