Running UTest tests => NoSuchMethodError: utest.framework.Tree.children()

Running UTest tests from within IntelliJ IDEA with Scala plugin installed gives an error

Running `sbt test` works just fine

I suspect changes in UTest may not be yet supported in the Scala Plugin test runner for UTest

Help is much appreciated
