Strangely enough, I get that too. Seems like the IDE-compiler gets stuck if
it encounters a specific obscure combination of errors in the program code,
or maybe after reporting a few hundred of them. The IDE works otherwise
fine, just compiling refuses to go further than "Compilation aborted." The
command-line compiler is not affected. Restarting the IDE gets the
F9-compilation running again and reporting errors right.

I think this has only happened to me if there were errors to be reported.
Never hung yet when compiling error-free code.
