KNIME unstable

Hi,

sometimes KNIME just stops working. It makes use of one processor by 100% but does not interact anymore. I cannot kill the process. Only kill -9 works.

top shows a process java with 100% cpu usage.

I did not start a node or something. Actually, I just added a "Table writer" node. I opened it to configure it and gave it an path for an output file, thats all.

 

Do you experience similar behaviour?

best regards
Soren

ps: I am using KNIME 2.9.2

Linux uofc 3.13.10-200.fc20.x86_64 #1 SMP Mon Apr 14 20:34:16 UTC 2014 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

 

This is a known bug in Java under Linux and will be addressed in the upcoming 2.10 release. It sometimes happens when you open and close dialogs. There is no known workaround.
