I'm not convinced. I have a testcase I ask you to try. In an empty
directory place the buildfile

<project name="test" default="testsubprog">
  <target name="testsubprog">
    <ant dir="sub" />

and create a subdirectory named sub. Into sub place a buildfile

<project name="sub" default="mk">
  <target name="mk">
    <mkdir  dir="test" />

This creates sub/test for me - on Linux with the latest CVS sources
and a whole bunch of private patches that shouldn't affect your

I'm still suspicious it might be the properties. A property task in
the main file will override all property tasks - for the same name -
in your sub projects.
