This is a change for a pretty major bug in the current beta. Any 
redefinition of a task in a taskdef will cause all such tasks to be run 
without being configured. It is a side effect of the task invalidation scheme.

Anyway, this change fixes the problem and all test cases pass. Nevertheless, 
as with any change in this area of Ant, it is probably worth being 
scrutinised by as many eyes as possible. In particular the removal of the 
code which replaces the unknown element with its actual class. I'm not sure 
what other side effects this may cause.
