Description Vladimir Riha 2013-10-01 13:55:07 UTC
This bug was originally marked as duplicate of bug 216877, that is already resolved. This bug is still valid, so this seems to be another bug, but it might be related.

Please let me know if Participant.dump helps you reproduce this issue.
Comment 5 _ gtzabari 2013-10-08 04:11:05 UTC
Increasing priority as this issue occurs very frequently with no known workaround.
Comment 6 _ gtzabari 2013-10-08 04:12:21 UTC
Also, I am fairly certain that this regression was introduced over the past 2 weeks. Older dev builds didn't have this problem.

Typed text in editor.

Typing in editor. IDE was open for over an hour over lunch.

Writing code.
Comment 10 _ gtzabari 2013-10-10 22:08:31 UTC
I stopped submitting reports for this issue using the exception reporter because it occurs too frequently (once every 10 seconds using build 201310050001). Increasing to P1 :)

In the meantime, I'm going to try upgrading to a newer version.
Comment 11 _ gtzabari 2013-10-10 22:25:50 UTC
FYI, I am able to reproduce this with today's build (201310070001) as well.
Comment 12 David Strupl 2013-10-11 05:21:56 UTC
Guys, is this present in 7.4? I hope not! Please speak up. If not I will update the version field .. Thanks for quick info.
Comment 13 Vladimir Riha 2013-10-11 05:51:27 UTC
I haven't seen it in 7.4 even with assertions enabled but I don't have exact steps to reproduce...
Comment 14 David Strupl 2013-10-11 07:17:55 UTC
Ok, let's treat it as not present in 7.4. If it turns not to be the case let's change the Version and Keywords back.
Comment 15 Dusan Balek 2013-10-11 13:31:17 UTC
Finally able to reproduce it. Fixed in jet-main.
Comment 16 Quality Engineering 2013-10-16 02:19:15 UTC
Integrated into 'main-silver', will be available in build *201310160001* on (upload may still be in progress)

Comment 17 Vladimir Riha 2013-12-04 16:06:35 UTC
Cannot reproduce anymore, verified. Thank you
