I'll take a look when I'm back at work next week.
It goes without saying that it (eventually) worked for me or I
wouldn't have committed the change. Unfortunately, ant is about as
useful as a chocolate teapot when it comes to debugging such errors,
but I'd suggest taking a look at which JDK is running ant. I've had
all manner of JDKs end up running it before, including kaffe once
which caused some rather bizarre results!
