When starting a PHPDoc comment with '/**' and pressing <Enter> Netbeans will often freeze.
It doesn't happen everytime, but I can replicate the error within a few tens of attempts.
Netbeans freezes, but doesn't crash. I have to kill the process in task manager. I've left Netbeans overnight, just in case it was thinking for a long time, but it was still frozen in the morning.
When replicating, I'm adding the comment to a class method.
Please, reopen this issue and attach profiler snapshot  or several thread dumps  taken during the freeze.

Thread dump after freeze occurs
Thread-dump was grabbed with the adaptj stacktrace tool.
Parsing & EditorBracesMatching threads - please evaluate, thanks.
BTW PHPBracketCompleter.beforeBreak() is run in AWT - is it OK, Petře?
Let's increase to P2, feel free to change after evaluation. Thanks.
This is known, but unfortunately I'm not able to reproduce it. The problem is that something doesn't release a lock and all editor features are waiting for the lock.
Microugly, do you have installed any other plugin, that is not in the standard distro? Could you please attach the message.log file? Thanks
I have play with it more and now I'm able to reproduce. I'm going to fix it.

I have two other log files, if you need them.
I don't believe I have any additional plugins installed.
I have fixed this. At least I'm not able to reproduce it any more. The fix will be available in the next build at hutson http://bertram.netbeans.org/hudson/job/PHP-build/. Should be available at build number #2077.
Could you check it? Just download the zip file, unzip and run from command line with --userdir switch. Thanks
Integrated into 'main-golden', will be available in build *201007170001* on http://bits.netbeans.org/dev/nightly/ (upload may still be in progress)
