Why don't javadoc lookups jump to method anymore?

In the past (actually quite a while ago) Shift-F1 javadoc lookups would jump directly to the method you were looking up. For a while now, IDEA has instead just jumped to the top of the javadoc file. I checked and anchors still exist in almost all javadoc files for the methods so I can't think of a reason why this doesn't work.

Is this a setting I can toggle on somewhere or is there actually a reason IDEA dropped this (massive) convenience?

Hi Matthew,

Could you provide a sample link which doesn't navigate to the target method?

E.g. I checked that the following link navigates not to the target class but to the target method of the target class - http://docs.oracle.com/javase/7/docs/api/java/lang/String.html#concat(java.lang.String)
