I took the trouble to try out the simple test case (187) with Ant and the

I'm not sure how I feel about this reported bug.  The dependency does not
exist, you have not told it where to look for it, and the only way to
discover this dependency is to make a complete scan through the set of
input files before proceeding.

have recently been acused of not...READ[ing your] ENTIRE EMAIL[s]!  ;-)
