IntelliJ Fail

Upgraded IntelliJ to 8.1 this morning. Launched it and got this:

That lovely message box is 2891 pixels across. So wide, that you cannot even see the control buttons in the bottom right. It also has a bunch of random HTML at the top of the box, as if it was meant to be displayed in a web page instead of this lovely dialog box.

Imagine if Microsoft or Adobe had software like this! Imagine the amount of ridicule. When you pay for software, you expect something a little more ... polished? Professional? Debugged? I don't know, but this is not it. Anyways, I've heard good things about 8.1 and the updated Scala plugin for it, so I hope this is just an aberration.
