On the latest dev build, the old problem of the refactoring window has cropped up again.

To be honest, I thought there was already an open ticket for this, but they have all been marked as resolved "works for me".

The problem:

Very randomly, and almost always with large files, Using the built in "refactor" on a class property/method, the refactoring window will not close. In addition, the close button on the window has no effect. The only way to close the window is to completely exit the IDE. There are no exceptions logged or anything to indicate there was a problem.

I can go for days without it happening, but once it does, it will happen on every 'refactor' after. This is not a new problem, like I said I was sure there was an open ticket for it, it has been happening for at least a year. Having to restart the IDE is more than an inconvenience.

In my setup, ubuntu with multiple workspaces, I simply throw the unclosable window on an unused workspace. But, for users without workspaces (Winblowz), the 'always on top' nature of the window will be very annoying.

Is there any way to run netbeans in a "debug" mode where everything is fully logged?
