When executing a long running SQL query, an attempt to cancel the running query (clicking "X" in the status bar) does not do anything. Even after restarting the mySql service, the "Executing SQL statement(s)" progress bar is still hanging in the status bar. Still, the CPU seems to be running on 50%. Only restarting the IDE will set back to normal.
I think we already have such issue in BugZilla ...
You are right - this is a long standing issue (and today a collegue was biten by this bug). The issue is not 100% the same, but the cause is (not being able to cancel a statement correctly). For hanging at 50% CPU seems to be another issue or a bug in the underlying jdbc driver.
