yup your right.

Hmmm .... I was thinking basedir property is actually overidden when the
second one.xml is read - resetting the directory to "." most likely. Which
would make sense in single project but in two project set up where second
build file is another directory we have to have some way of making the
basedir specified in build.xml relative to the basedir supplied in Ant
task. Does that make sense ???
