pycharm debugger slow due to "collecting data"

Just starting out with pycharm and I like it a lot so far. One problem though is that when debugging, the debugger seems to hang for many seconds when I step over/into/out with "collecting data" in the "variables" window. It really hurts my productivity if I have to wait multiple seconds for each step over/into/out.

Anyone know what can cause this? Not sure where to start looking. I googled it of course but didn't come up with much.

specs: pycharm 3.4.1 and python 2.7.6. Running pycharm on a CentOS VM, windows host.
