Run/Debug configurations are missed after IntelliJ 10 -> 11 upgrate

Hi IntelliJ users and developers,

All IntelliJ 10.5.4 project Run/Debug configurations were removed or hidden somehow after it was opened in IntelliJ Idea 11.0.1. :(
- The project type is file based one. Run/Debug configurations are local. A proper .iws file doesn't contain any allusion to the configs. IntelliJ UI show empty Run/Debug configs list.
- OS: MacOSx 10.6.8.

What is going on? Why does application remove really important user data? IMHO it's not acceptable... Are there any backdoor to rescue Run/Debug configs (backups, anything else) ?

Thanks in advance.

The configurations are stored in the .iws file. The format of the configurations didn't change between IDEA 10 and 11, so there should be no reason for the configurations to disappear. You may be able to access previous versions of the .iws file using the local history feature.

I've checked the case with local history of .iws file at the very beginning. Unfortunatelly the local history is absent for this file. :( It's also strange because it's available for .ipr one.

I've tried to reproduce the issue once again on the same project with the recreated manually Run/Debug configs, but without success.
