Tomcat log/vm settings being changed in my configuration

In my Tomcat run configruation, in the "logs" tab I define a log file that I manage manually.  The path is something like: "/home/me/tomcat/logs/tomcat.log".  I find when IDEA restarts, it has man-handled this path, and it is changed to "%IDEA_RUN:TOMCAT_HOME%/logs/tomcat.log"

How can I stop IDEA from doing this?  The log file is simply not there, and so I have no log file when I run the configuration.

I find a similar problems happens when I define default VM Parameters for tomcat configurations.  I'll have a VM parameter like so:

"-Ddatabase.configuration.file.url=file:///home/me/config/properties/database.properties"

When I create a new Tomcat configuration, IDEA changes this to:

"-Ddatabase.configuration.file.url=file://$USER_HOME$/config/verve/properties/database.properties"

Which, while correct, I'd just prefer IDEA to leave my setting alone.

How can I have IDEA stop making these unwanted config changes?

Both problems will be fixed in next IDEA 10.0.2 EAP, thank you for reporting.
