IDEA 9 and XSLT Resource Includes


i have some XSLT stylesheets which include other stylesheets like this

    <xsl:include href="file:com/xx/yyy/zzz/example.xsl"/>

the stylesheets execute ok at run time but when i edit the stylesheet in IDEA the XSLT editor cannot find the included stylesheet so i get lots of misleading red error bars.

previous to IDEA 9 i resolved this by adding the "file:com/xx/yyy/zzz/example.xsl" as an IDE wide resource and the XSLT editor found them and the red errors went away.

in IDEA 9 the resources have changed to be project wide, not IDE wide (which is something i've wanted for a long time), however now the XSLT editor doesn't seem to be able to resolve the resources.

i just noticed that all my resources had the new "Project" checkbox checked, when i unchecked it, all the includes went green!

the Help button doesn't mention the "Project" checkbox, does anyone know what this is and what impact does unchecking it have?
