Older versions did exactly what you describe :P so it may be a problem
there. How new is you version ? 

* Change compiler to classic
* Download new ant version
* get the extremely free opensource speedy compiler jikes (my recommendation)

Depending on your particular jvm you may need to put %JAVA_HOME%\tools.jar
into classpath to get classic to work. I am not sure if there is a packaged
version of ant available thou you can get source from but you have to use cvs
which may be painful if you are a first time user.

Jikes is a free compiler originally available at
There is a link from there to it's current home and I think this compiler
is great so this is the easiest/best option I guess :P
