The IDE hangs when following a link (press CTRL when mouse is over a "uses" unit, click on blue underlined link). bds.exe then uses 100% CPU time (of one core) and displays "not responding" in the windows title. This happens only on links to delphi units (IDHTTP, SysUtils, Classes, Windows,...) but not on units in the project or other external packages (as fare as I have seen). If this happens, I can only kill bds.exe with the TaskManager (loosing all changes which are not saved before!).
When I use "Open file at cursor", then it works with ALL units! If the file is then opened in the IDE, I can use the link without problems. When I close the file again and retry the link, the IDE hangs again.
It looks like the same problem occur if I try to follow a link to a method of a class in such a unit.
