MCUXpresso constantly crashing when building or launching debugging

Hi, I recently downloaded MCUXpresso to work on a project using a K66F board. Unfortunately, it seems like 3/4 times I try to debug, and maybe 1/4 times I build the IDE completely crashes, often without leaving any error message in workspace/.meta/.log, and never displaying the cause for the crash before crashing.


My system: 

  • MacOS High Sierra 10.13.3
  • MCUXpresso IDE 10.1.1 [Build 606] [2018-01-02]
  • KSDK 2.3.0 (2017-11-16)
  • Oracle Java 8 Update 161 1.8.0_161-b12


I think this is unrelated to the issue on High Sierra where deleting a big chunk of text crashes the IDE. Although that does trigger a crash on my system as well.
