Not only is this not a problem, it is actually useful. When your build 
file contains multiple <javac> tasks it is useful to be able to click on 
the one which caused the error and go straight to it. In some cases 
<javac> problems have nothing to do with the source and more to do with 
the way the <javac> task is setup (classpaths, etc).
