+ |                              DESCRIPTION                                   |
+ The script ant.bat, when trying to set ANT_HOME relative to its own location,
+ strips out more that just the last occurrence of "\bin\" in the pathname.
+ 
+ The code uses a construct that removes multiple occurrences of "\bin\" 
+ instead of some more-focused construct to remove just the last occurrence.
+ 
+ Test sequence:
+ 
+ - Install Ant under a directory named "bin", e.g, C:\test\bin\ant.  
+ - Make sure ANT_HOME is not set.
+ - Run C:\test\bin\ant\bin\ant.bat.
+ - Note the error message:
+   The system cannot find the path specified. 
+ 
+ In ant.bat, note the line:
+ 
+   set DEFAULT_ANT_HOME=%DEFAULT_ANT_HOME:\bin\=%
+ 
+ This construct deletes all occurrences of "\bin\" in C:\test\bin\ant\bin\, 
+ leaving C:\testant instead of C:\test\bin\ant.
+ 
+ 
+ Perhaps the build script should use %DEFAULT_ANT_HOME%\.., or
+ some construct that removes only the last directory name.
