    IDEA 2018.1 won’t start up with the optimizer plugin installed:

    Internal error. Please report to

    Removing ~/.IntelliJIdea2018.1/config/plugins/ft-intellij-optimizer prevents this issue.

    It looks like this plugin was abandoned long ago, but I had installed it once and never removed it.
