Transparency for floating windows does not work

Hi everyone,

I have a problem concerning transparancy for floating windows. I have activated the option in the settings but if a open a window in floating mode (Ant builds or Structure for example) the window does not fade when I set the focus into an editor window. The title bar is gray but the floating window is still on top without any transparancy. Am I missing something?

I am using IDEA 8.1 on Windows XP and JDK 1.6.0_11.

Thank you for your help in advance!

Hi again,

it seems like the missing transparency is not based on Windows XP. I have used IDEA on my private laptop with Vista at the weekend, and transparency didn't work, too.

Is there anybody here who has a working window transparency?
