No, it's the javac task that's acting weird. For "historical reasons"
javac does an implicit copyfile on everything that's not .java . This
is said to change in the future - some projects are known to rely on
it and somehow everybody seems to be waiting to remove this.

If you go to the CVS version, the delete task will take an dir
attribute as well as include/exclude attributes. Place a

<delete dir="${dst}">
  <exclude name="**/*.class" />

immediately behind your javac task to get rid of them.

On the other hand you said you wanted the files to be compiled in
place. Forget about the delete task and simply set destdir to ${src}
as well.
