If there is no backwards compatible solution for this bug I can life 
with it being set to "Resolved Later" as in my enviroment I need need a 
shell script to invoke the build process. At the moment this build 
script no only puts the classes required for Ant into the CLASSPATH but 
it also the creates the directory in which the compiled tasks will be. 
Not a very elegant solution but a working one.

Is there some kind of time schedule for Ant2?
