Behavioural difference in module dependency scope settings between 10.0.1 and 10.0.3

Hi All,

There seems to be a difference in behaviour between version 10.0.1 and 10.0.3 Ultimate edition of intellij.

I am working with a maven project where some of the dependencies have been set to 'provided' as is normal.

While trying to run a java program (which is located under the java source folder) I get class not found exceptions because the scope of a particular jar is set to provided, again this is quite understandable.

So the solution is to go into [Project Structure -> Modules -> blah_module -> Dependencies] and set the relevent dependency to 'Runtime'.  This works in 10.0.1 and the classes get loaded, however in 10.0.3 this does not work - sounds like a bug?

This is because then IDEA build the runtime classpath, it uses dependency settings from your pom files, not from the project structure settings, since they do not map precisely one to another.
