GUEST: C:\Users\khobeib\Documents\NetBeansProjects\WebApplication1\nbproject\build-impl.xml:558: Deployment error:
The Sun Java System Application Server could not start.
More information about the cause is in the Server log file.
Possible reasons include:
 - IDE timeout: refresh the server node to see if it's running now.
 - Port conflicts. (use netstat -a to detect possible port numbers already used by the operating system.) 
 - Incorrect server configuration (domain.xml to be corrected manually) 
 - Corrupted Deployed Applications preventing the server to start.(This can be seen in the server.log file. In this case, domain.xml needs to be modified).
 - Invalid installation location.
See the server log for details.
BUILD FAILED (total time: 33 seconds)

GUEST: Backspace doesn't work anymore

GUEST: svn show changes

GUEST: Resuming a disconnected remote session.

ijay: Keep NB opening for a whole night and this bug appears

GUEST: indexing repository

GUEST: RemoteDesktop connection was terminated

GUEST: open a web.xml file

GUEST: minimizing/maximizing windows.

GUEST: minimizing/maximizing windows.

GUEST: minimizing/maximizing windows.

GUEST: minimazing/maximizing window.

GUEST: Just started NetBeans: it opens the Swing file in Design mode on startup (as was there when I closed NB).
Then the app sat like that for 1min and when I switched back to it I found the error.
Nothing else.

GUEST: logged in to remote machine running netbeans 6.7  via remote desktop on Windows 7 RC

GUEST: I was editing code OUTSIDE of my swing-using class. This seems to keep occurring when compiling on-the-fly when some elements of the project are Swing.

codeamatic: Nothing.  I simply just came back to netbeans after having left my computer idle for a few hours with Netbeans open

GUEST: expanding folder in "project view"

brettryan: I think this is due to using NB while connecting to a remote desktop session while NB is already running.

Steps to reproduce.
1. Start NB on a Vista machine.
2. Start netbeans and open a project.
3. On an XP machine open a microsoft RDC connection to the Vista machine.
4. Start using the already running NB instance.

-- Expected behaviour
You should experience lots of NPE's and parts of the UI will be missing.

GUEST: Just moving to a source file; however, the window is scrunched to only half of the screen because I am watching a movie in another window that takes up the other half of the screen.

GUEST: I clicked in the editor.

GUEST: Disabled secondary monitor and aero

GUEST: browsing some internet pages

jonast: did it in the background while I was doing other things

GUEST: I woke up this morning and the Exceotion was there when I turned on the screen. The Netbeans window has been idle for maby a little over 24 hours.

GUEST: Trying to set a breakpoint, Netbeans is Breaking!!! All the time!!! Even on a fresh minimal install. What gives? When I do get a breakpoint set, and I try to go to its properties, I literally get an empty customization options are there. Its like a properly sized JDialog with no components!

GUEST: The IDE is on the back ground idle for a period of time when I noticed the red alert flashing.

GUEST: Editing program

GUEST: Nothing

GUEST: Subversion

GUEST: subversion

GUEST: subversion

GUEST: Had just started NetBeans...

GUEST: Editing source code, then I minimize NetBean and Open Mozilla Firefox, when I return to NetBeans IDE, this message was showed.

GUEST: Creating a progeam

GUEST: Just scrolling up and down in the code

GUEST: Computer was asleep. When up and running again, I saw the red icon on th bottom right of the status bar.

GUEST: -starting the svn import dialog, cancel the dialog because subversion was not installed
-compiling and running the project i am working on
-creating a new class

These were the actions I am aware of. Sorry can�t be more specific.

GUEST: ...and again
