ANT annoyance in build 2013

When running an Ant build with javac tasks in it, IDEA pops up a command
prompt for every javac task which takes the focus. This is very annoying
when working in other apps while a build is running. Before I file a bug, I
wanted to make sure it doesn't have something to do with our build script or
a setting I missed (again).

I don't think I am observing this behavior and I constantly build everything
through ANT scripts with javac.

What is your ANT configuration (JVM, background/non background, javac,
etc.)?

I also notice this behavior. I am using Ant 1.5.4 with JDK 1.3.1_06, with the run in background option selected.

I have not tried running Ant 1.6.x or a 1.4.x JDK. This may resolve the issue. If not hopefully it is fixed in a later EAP build.

You might find the problem is actually with the JDK.

I've just switched from JDK1.3.1_08 to the latest release of 1.3.1, because of the same issue.

I'm using 1.3.1_11(just switched from 1.3.1_03 to see if that helped,
didn't), background selected, ant 1.6alpha(actually, I think it's a modified
version), javac has fork=true, other than that normal settings.
