Actually this never was a "feature", but what you see on the wiki is a
workaround that used to work. Now when you apply a line style, the arrow
size changes according to the line thickness of the style, so I guess
someone else might say it's been fixed.
An alternate workaround could be to create a line with a length of 1-pt
(some nominal value), then attach an arrow. Then you could put this at
the end of a line and adjust the line size/color and arrow size/color
independently. Using the spinboxes in Properties will help you place the
arrows with precision and consistency, and of course grouping and
copying will save work too.
I'll append/edit the wiki page when I get a chance.
