Subject Re: [PATCH] Ant 1.4 bug fix
Date Fri, 14 Sep 2001 14:54:02 GMT

I used the downloaded code from the website. In that
download, the sources do _not_ import any System properties. Hence, the
need for the patch.

Could the problem be that the downloadable source is out of sync with
the cvs source?

I will try a clean build from the cvs source today to see if the cvs
sources contain such import behavior.
