select & hover on a CLOB-tablefield shows all the contents of that field.

I opened a table and selected a CLOB-field with a large text in it.
My screen was filled with a preview of the contents and the RAM was filled to the max by the sqldeveloper process to the point of unusability of my pc (Win7_x64 with 4GB RAM).

In a tweet-exchange with Jeff Smith he determined that the problem is a preview not limited to a substring but instead showing everything.

At his request I am posting this in the forum (hopefully in the correct way ;-) ) as a note.

In Windows the java-version is:
SetJavaHome C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_37
C:\>java -version
java version "1.6.0_37"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_37-b06)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 20.12-b01, mixed mode)
