    The slow context menu issue is also affecting me on Idea Ultimate 15. I see that a fix has been included in the latest patch of Pycharm 5.0.1. Any plans to fix this in IDEA?

      If it was an issue specific to PyCharm, I suppose we have to wait until the python plugin is updated for IDEA?

    I had all sorts of trouble trying to get the update to “take”, it kept restarting as 5.0.
    Eventually rather than doing
    to run as a privileged user I did
    su –

    and it worked. I’m not sure why sudo wasn’t sufficient, but it might be worth mentioning, or fixing.
