RubyMine 6.0.2 Uncaught exception: failed to allocate memory

On Ubuntu 13.04 and RubyMine 6.0.2, I am having major trouble debugging.


After a custom exception is raise (and I have an exception break set for it), I am left at the place the exception was raised in the debugger.


When I try to traverse the stack frames, it takes a few minutes trying to load the stack frame, and then I get:


Uncaught exception: failed to allocate memory


I am trying to debug a non-Rails application, and I've altered rubymine64.vmoptions because I kept running out of memory before. It is not clear to me that the above error is Java-related or Ruby-related.


I am hoping that this issue can be resolved, because the entire reason I purchased a RubyMine license is to ease my debugging with your tool. I do not wish to have to resort to debugging this complex application from command-line (like I sometimes do).


It is my hopes that RubyMine is up to the task. Please tell me what I am doing wrong here.


My system: i7, 24GB RAM, running 64-bit Ubuntu 13.10, and RubyMine running with the lastest Oracle Java installed:


java version "1.7.0_45"

Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_45-b18)

Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 24.45-b08, mixed mode)

Re: RubyMine 6.0.2 Uncaught exception: failed to allocate memory

Could you please provide RM's log (Help|Show Log in ...) and also try to run ruby debugger in verbose mode (Settings|Debugger|Ruby) and provides its log too.


Regrads, Oleg.
