Problem adding source paths in 815

Knowing that I was going to have to set stuff up again in 815 due to the project file changes, I blew away my install and unzipped 815 anew.

Setting up my project went fine...until I brought up the Project Properties pane and tried to add some source directories (I had none; the ones that I picked in the new project wizard weren't kept/were blown away/something), the OK button is grayed out as soon as I select a directory to add. (and so thus I have no way of picking a directory to add)

I have tried restarting IDEA a few times as well; no change.

I would file this as a bug in Tracker, but this seems really basic/necessary to do anything in IDEA, and it sounds like some people are using 815, and so clearly must not have hit the same problem. (basically, I'm trying to safeguard against me just being an idiot about something before I file a Tracker issue)

That is how to use Root Module (I've posted it in "Main Module pane
questions" thread and noew there are some more comments)
1. Content is the same as "project path" was.
2. When you have content added you can add source folders - source path
(tests can be placed in separate sourcepath and compiled to separate output
path) and exclude folders. MORE: Source roots and excludes can be add only
for selected content. So, Ok button is disabled when you pointing "wrong"
directory.
3. To create classpath go to Libraries tab and add jars (or directories with
classes) there. You can group jars into "named libraries". Single
jar/directory and group of jars/directories named "library". MORE: You can
transform jar to "named library" by double-clicking it and entering name.
4. To order classpath go to order tab. It functions much like old classpath
tab.
5. To add external sources and/or javadocs go to Libraries choose there
library you want to attach sources/javadocs to and use buttons.
6. To remove anything use remove button.
