I'm sorry, but with or without fork attribute, fork="no"  or "false"
or "yes" or "true", all give the same exception.

For the same setup, running antlr.Tool class through <java>
task runs fine without any exceptions:

<java classname="antlr.Tool">
          <arg value="-o"/>
          <arg value="${build.dir}/${parser.pkg.dir}/antlr"/>
          <arg value="src/parsergrammars/antlr_aliases.g"/>

But then I would miss the dep. checking done in <antlr> task
and would have to use <uptodate> task (which is not as elegant
to use if there are more than 1 targetfiles).
