because it fixed another defect. Before Ant 1.3 you could not build ant out
of the box because an empty CLASSPATH entry (if CLASSPATH was undefined)
would cause  build process to fail. 

It is highly recomended that you NEVER in any circumstances have multiple
implementations of ant library sitting in classpath. To fix this you can
simply delete crimson/jaxp and replace with another compiler (ie xerces).
