ANT does not work in directories whose name contains a "#" character

ANT fails to read files in directories with a "#" character because the underlying XML parser
considers the filename to be a URL (internally it adds "file:" to the path. The XML parser
then considers the "#" as a anchor delimiter within the web page.

This bug is particularly nasty for us since we use the Continuus configuration management
system which likes to place projects under a directory named projectName#userName. This bug
renders ANT unusable in our environment.
