Can I get rid of the "Compilation completed successfully" popup?

Whenever I compile (or launch, with a pre-launch "Make") my Flex project, I get the following popup:

In Settings -> Notifications, I have "Compiler" and "Flash Compiler" set to "No popup":

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks!

If compilation takes more than 1 minute then this popup is always shown and can't be switched off. I'm not sure that this logic is perfect but that how it works now.

I'm absolutely certain this logic is imperfect.  Particularly if the compilation is being run as part of a launch configuration: if the compilation was successful, I'll get a launch, and if it wasn't, I won't.  Either way, I don't need the popup.  In the case of the successful compile, my browser window comes up, then the popup comes up after IDEA loses focus, and so my Windows taskbar (which I usually keep hidden) becomes visible and starts flashing at me because an out-of-focus window (IDEA) has a popup.  That's distracting and unnecessary.

Even if the compilation is a standalone, there are other indicators of success or failure - text in the status bar, text in the Messages window, etc.  So I think that this popup is almost never needed.

For those who prefer it, there could be an option to show it, but I know I'd immediately turn that off.

I've just created feature request IDEA-124626 for this.
