+ I've winnowed down a problem with uptodate and unless where it does not act as I
+ would expect based on the examples I've seen.  It's more difficult to explain
+ than to just give an example.  First, touch a file called "from.txt", and then
+ "to.txt".  Then try running ant on this build:
+ 
+ -----------
+ <?xml version="1.0"?>
+  
+ <project name="uptodate_test" default="test" basedir=".">
+  
+  <target name="init" >
+   <tstamp/>
+  </target>
+  
+  <target name="test" depends="init">
+   <antcall target="something">
+    <param name="testproperty" value="something"/>
+   </antcall>
+  </target>
+  
+  <target name="something.uptodate">
+   <uptodate property="${testproperty}.is.uptodate" targetfile="to.txt">
+    <srcfiles dir=".">
+     <include name="from.txt"/>
+    </srcfiles>
+   </uptodate>
+  </target>
+  
+  <target name="something" depends="something.uptodate"
+ unless="${testproperty}.is.uptodate">
+   <echo message="something.is.uptodate = ${something.is.uptodate}"/>
+  </target>
+  
+ </project>
+ -----------
+ 
+ ...I would have expected it to *not* echo anything because the unless would be
+ triggered, but it is not being triggered, even though the property has been
+ set.  Is this expected behavior?  If so, is there a way to accomplish what I'm
+ attempting here?
