assigning shortcuts to Ant targets

Is anybody else seeing a issue where you cannot assign shortcuts to Ant targets? If I right-click on an Ant target and select Assign Shortcut..., I see the Keymap dialog but there is nothing pre-selected. In addition, in the Keymap dialog, there isn't anything under Ant Targets (or External Tools, which makes assigning shortcuts to external tool problematic as well).

This is caused by the ongoing Ant support rewrite: this UI has not yet been
connected to the new code. This will work again a few builds later.

There was some exiting problems with how Shortcuts to Ant Targets worked. Hopefully they will be addressed also.

Currently, in order to assign a shortcut to an Ant Target in the Keymap control panel, you hvae to do the following:
1. Edit Ant build.xml properties. On Filters Tab, you have to check off the targets that you want to assign shortcuts to. (It doesn't matter if you have the filter toggle on or off on the ant control panel.)

2. Then in IDE Settings->Keymap, the ant targets will show up under Other folder, and you can assign a shortcut.
