Additional Environment Description:

Report Description:
With Ant 1.1 I would define a property on the command line and then use this property to set the basedir. In Ant 1.2 if this is done than project.getBaseDir() returns a bad directory name. This is used to set the working directory for a Jikes compiler which than causes it to fail.

How To Reproduce:
null

Workaround:
