Description esmithbss 2010-09-01 06:11:12 UTC
Product Version = NetBeans IDE 6.9.1 (Build 201007282301)
Operating System = Windows XP version 5.1 running on x86
Java; VM; Vendor = 1.6.0_20
Runtime = Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM 16.3-b01

If the log folder for a project is missing or invalid (example: an invalid symlink on Linux), the project scanning gets lost and the IDE locks up.  The only way to break at this point is to kill the Java Session from the OS.

Steps to reproduce (on linux):

1) Open the IDE
2) Create a project
3) Close the IDE
4) Remove the log folder
5) create an invalid symlink to a non-existant folder as a replacement for the log folder.
6) Reopen the IDE and wait for the IDE to scan the project.
