It's Java 1.6.  Fails for me as well.

The root problem is that <import> in this test reads from a jar via a
classloader you don't have access to and the jar doesn't get closed
until that classloader is garbage collected at an unknown point in the

With Java 1.4 my CloseResource hack got a handle to the JarFile the
imported file was read from and closed it - this doesn't seem to work on
Java 1.6, most likely the close() doesn't work or you get a different
JarFile than the one that is keeping a lock on the jar.

I'll try to fix the issue by moving the jar out of ${output} (so it
doesn't disturb other tests) and hoping that File.deleteOnExit() works
on it.
