I have a copy of Ant downloaded 14 June, and I don't see this
problem. The modern compile works fine for me.

Maybe you could post relevant portions of your build.xml file?

(Note that a classic compile with 1.3 is simply using the old 1.2
compiler, which is still included with 1.3. This isn't useful
information, it's just a random related tidbit.)
