Intellij IDEA 10.5 stuck in the loading process

Intellij IDEA is a really smart IDA that attracts more and more developers to its community. However, a lot of bugs are still hanging there which annoy people too much.

One of the bugs is when you start IDEA with a pretty large project, there is a highly chance that your loading process will stuck there forever. This has been identified as a bug in IDEA-67401, and hasn't been resolved yet now.

According to that issue page, there is a workaround to load the project. That is to disable the 'Tip of the Day' and 'Productivity Guide' prompt when start a new project or open IDEA.

Besides, there is another possibility that you cannot even get in to adjust your setting before it get stuck. If that is the case, just remember to be very quick when you open IDEA, as soon as the loading project prompt pop up, cancel the loading, as well as all the next loading processes. Once the loading started, you will not be able to cancel it again, and have to kill the IDE and restart again.
