When I start Netbeans with many open projects, the projects initialization seems to never finish. I get the “Initializing project…” message under each project, without any CPU or I/O activities, like if it was a deadlock. I don’t know why this bug appear now as I did not recently changed my version of Netbeans (still 7.3, not yet 7.4) and did not install new plugins.
Until I gather enough data to create a decent bug report I’ll use this workaround:
- rm $HOME/.netbeans/7.3/config/Preferences/org/netbeans/modules/projectui.properties
- start netbeans
- change the current project group which wrongly appear empty, to any other group
- change back to the previous group and get projects loaded
