Customising the Error Stripe Mark for inspections doesn't work in IDEA 9.0.2

I use IDEA with a great many inspections enabled.  Unfortunately this isn't typical across the team and some files effectively light up like Christmas trees.

In IDEA 8.x I had categorised inspections with finer granularity than the error/warning/info defaults and defined colours for the Error Stripe Mark and source to have levels of obtrusiveness relative to their urgency.  Unfortunately the custom Error Stripe Mark colours don't appear to be honoured in IDEA 9.0.2 (they were in 8.1.x) - instead the stripe marks appear as Yellow (the warning default).   This has become annoying enough I've ended up turning off many inspections.

I'm running IDEA under Sun Java6u20 on Windows XP SP3.

Can anyone else confirm this bug?  Does anyone have a workaround?

Hi Aaron,

1. Go to target insppection settings;
2. Click 'Customize' button:
customize-inspection-stripe1.png
3. Add custom severity and define custom colors for it:
customize-inspection-stripe2.png
customize-inspection-stripe3.png
4. Check the result:
customize-inspection-stripe4.png

No such luck.  That's exactly what I've done.  Works in 8.1.x but not in 9.0.2

Perhaps it's a bug due to the JVM choice or configuration. I'll pull out the non-standard options and see if it solves it.

I had hoped there was something new in the configuration of 9.0.2 but I guess that'd be too obvious.

If I can confirm it as JVM version related I'll file a bug.

It works for me under IDEA 9.0.2 Ubuntu 9.10 sun jvm 1.6.0_19.

Hmmm.  Neither removing the IDEA_JDK variable (which makes IDEA default back to 1.6.0u17 from 1.6.0u20) or removing my custom VM options changes the behaviour.

I did import settings from 8.1.x and wonder if the issue lies in some incorrectly migrated configuration artifact(s).  I will try a fresh install (well move the current config aside and restart my current install anyway).

What are exact symptoms of the problem?Am I right understanding that you configured custom severity with custom stripe but it's not applied?
