Attempt to open source folders 'hangs'

6.7 Beta started working once I stopped it using the previous 6.5 stored configuration i.e. Reset netbeans up from
scratch and re-opened active projects
I also tried copying my existing 6.7M3 configuration to 6.5 but made no difference

This could be the same as issue #161367. Is there any chance for us to replicate your projects setup? Or better, would
you be able to reproduce the problem on a self-contained example projects that you could send us for analysis? Also
there have been several important fixes in this area since 6.7beta could you please try using a recent dev build?

In order to further investigate this it would be great if you could run the IDE with the flag described at, which will automatically generate a heapdump whenever OOME is thrown. Please let
me know ( or through this issue) if you have a heap dump ready for upload and I'll let you know
where to upload it.

Another switch that could be useful is -J-Dorg.netbeans.modules.parsing.impl.indexing.RepositoryUpdater.level=FINE,
which will turn on logging in repository updater. The log file is in <ide-userdir>/var/log/messages.log, please attach
it here after running the IDE with this switch and reproducing the issue. Thanks a lot

Ok, I'm closing this as FIXED, but please reopen if this happens again. Thanks
