The current EAP versions of IDEA already have Ant 1.5, if I'm not mistaken.

I've never had a problem with that in the EAP builds. Perhaps it is 
buggy in the 2.6 version?

Again, I've never had problems with this. I just make sure that my Ant 
build works correctly from commandline and then I adjust my IDEA 
project's list of jars so that it's syntax checking and indexing stuff 
works. I never actually use IDEA's build system. I always use an Ant 
target. I have my two main targets assigned to keyboard shortcuts (I 
think this is new in the EAP builds, not available in 2.6).
