did anyone encountered this?

I see this from time to time. This is a bug in the version of ant that 
is used by gradle for dependencies. It has been reported that gradle 1.8 
may have a newer version of ant that fixes this bug.

In the mean time, a less intrusive workaround is:

    gradle -PUSE_DEPEND=false ...

If enough people are getting bitten by this, should we consider making 
USE_DEPEND=false the default?
