IntelliJ IDEA: StackOverflowError on Build Project

Tags: ,



I am using the following IntelliJ.

IntelliJ IDEA 2017.2 EAP
Build #IU-172.2953.9, built on June 14, 2017
IntelliJ IDEA EAP User
Expiration date: July 14, 2017
JRE: 1.8.0_152-release-915-b3 x86_64
JVM: OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM by JetBrains s.r.o
Mac OS X 10.12.5

I have been getting java.lang.StackOverflowError upon building the project.

Has anyone fallen into the same situation?
