    Flash Builder 4.5.1 for Mac hanging/crashing during startup "Loading Workbench"




      I'm having ongoing trouble with Flash Builder 4.5.1 hanging/crashing during startup.


      Sometimes the following Terminal command fixes the issue:

      cd ~/Documents/Adobe\ Flash\ Builder\ 4.5/cascaded/308971/configuration/.settings

      rm org.eclipse.ui.ide.prefs


      However this isn't a silver bullet solution, and sometimes the only way is to uninstall and reinstall FB4.5.


      But this is a major hassle, especially after 3 or 4 times!


      I am running Mac OS X 10.7 and have updated to FB 4.5.1 Premium and also installed Subversion/Subclipse as well as the BlackBerry PlayBook SDK.


      Problems seem to occur when working in SVN projects.

      I have also noticed that the Delete and Arrow keys and Right Click fails to work sometimes also.


      Is there a way to reset / clear FB 4.5 Prefs / Workbench?
