I suspect it is Ant: http://svn.apache.org/viewvc? view=rev&revision=409378Can anyone confirm?
I think you're correct in your assumption about the Ant change, but quickly scanning through the commit, I cannot see what the problem might be. Perhaps Antoine who committed the code, will know more about what the problem is.
