Description claudio4j 2005-09-29 14:23:50 UTC
[ JDK VERSION : 1.6 ]

Yesterday, right after installed (with a clean user dir) used update center, and Tools --> option , NetBeans (5 beta)  have freeze, see the steps below.

1) Install NB 5 beta and run NB
1) Selected some update center modules 
2) After finished, and "turning off modules...done" message displayed on status bar, go Tools --> Options
3) Status bar displays "loading options..."  together with progress bar
4) At Editor Option, select "macro" and "Code template" tab, there were no one option at drop-down list, screenshot 1
5) selected "ok" or "cancel" button
   at this time the "loading options..."  status bar message and progress bar is on, yet. screenshot 2
6) Exit NetBeans, File --> Exit
7) Progress bar and "Loading Options" status bar message continues to show, but NetBeans freezes.

	I did those steps two times, the freeze is reproducible.

See my system

  Product Version       = NetBeans IDE 5.0 Beta (Build 200509261930)
  Operating System      = Linux version running on i386
  Java; VM; Vendor      = 1.6.0-ea; Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM 1.6.0-ea-b53; Sun Microsystems Inc.
  Java Home             = /usr/local/j2se/sun/jdk1.6.0/jre
  System Locale; Encod. = pt_BR (nb); ISO-8859-15

	Strange, there were no exception at .netbeans/5.0beta/var/log/messages

I tried to see the thread dump: kill -3 PID, no results...

I killed the process, kill PID

Started again, go to Tools --> Options, them "Negative value is not allowd" (ok,
known bug), the exit, options, go to Tools --> Options again, everything now
shows to be fine (code template and macros)

Then I removed netbeans install and user dir (rm -rf ~/.netbeans

Installed NB again and started, updated modules, when modules installment ends,
exit netbeans.

started NB again, go to tools --> options, it shows "negative value is not
allowed"  (known bug, ok), then Editor option --> "macro" and "code template"
shows the 1st screenshot, drop down list, shows no values, go to cancel button,
then got back to tools --> Options , everythin shows fine now.

To let you know, the selected modules
  CVS Profile

and marked all of them "Global" and "Yes to all"

Known editor/options issue?
Comment 5 claudio4j 2005-09-30 04:24:37 UTC
The bug I refer, when I wrote "go to tools --> options, it shows "negative value
is not allowed"  (known bug, ok)"
Comment 6 Jan Jancura 2005-10-07 08:54:20 UTC
I will look at it.
Comment 7 Jan Jancura 2006-01-03 09:02:11 UTC
Too late to fix in nb5.0.
Comment 8 Vitezslav Stejskal 2006-12-04 10:37:54 UTC
I am sorry, but I could not reproduce this. I installed some global modules from
AU, restarted Netbeans and Tools-Options showed up nicely after that. Without
the full thread dump the chances for catching this deadlock are pretty low.
