I have -fakestatt-all. That does not help.

Intellij IDEA, it tries to be friendly by only listing directories
that contains things that may be of interest.

Huh? I am often behind a firewall.

I am _not_ talking about removing CellServeDB, I am talking about
removing the _default_ CellServeDB. You can still add your DB servers
to your own CellServeDB.

The current CellServeDB in the distribution is simply not user
friendly. The only sites that may benefit from it are those that are
in it. It is of no use for new sites.
