Thread dump of my locked up nb made with jvisualvm...

The IDE locks up after a few minutes of usage. So far i see no connection between the freezes and the component used at the time. It have locked up in the editor, resolve conflict window, settings, plugins and UI editor. I tried out build 201311170002 and it is still hanging. The operating system is OSX Mavericks.
java -version:
java version "1.7.0_40"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_40-b43)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 24.0-b56, mixed mode)
Attached a thread dump made with visual vm. Since I can reproduce this any time, feel free to ask for logs or whatever you need from the IDE. Just tell me where it is. I also have a thread dump if you need it.

A known problem, has been filed to JDK.

Fixed in promoted builds of JDK8 so far, since b115. You can get JDK8 builds at

In JDK 7uX codeline, the regression was introduced in 7u40 and not fixed yet in the last 7u45.
