This issue was caused by the upload of Ant 1.9.8. In this version the
systemClasspath field in the Path class was made final [1], and the
InternalAntRunner class in Eclipse attempts to modify it [2], leading to
the IllegalAccessError that can be seen in the .metadata/.log file.

Most eclipse based packages are potentially affected.

I plan to revert the modification in Ant and make the field non final.
