NetBeans IDE 7.3 Beta 2, full IDE
Open Options dialog, enter Ant into the filter field, two tabs are enabled - Editor/Hints and Java/Ant. The tab Editor/Hints is selected. I would prefer the tab Java/Ant to be selected in this case, as this is most probably the one that the user wants to see.
This seems to be a "problem" only to the mentioned Ant case. Feel free to wontfix if fixing is too complex.
