------- Additional Comments From billb@progress.com  2002-08-08 18:59 -------
When running under a 1.1 or 1.2 JVM or when the <exec> task's vmlauncher 
attribute is set to false, Ant uses the bin/antRun script if the dir attribute 
is specified with a directory other than the current one.  In order to find the 
antRun script, the property ant.home must be set to the base directory where Ant 
is installed, i.e. -Dant.home=/usr/local/ant.  Like the <exec> task, the <chmod>

task is executing the native UNIX chmod command so it needs to call the antRun 
script to change the directory before running the command.

In 1.3 JVM's and above, Runtime.exec supports the ability to launch an 
executable in a different directory so the antRun script isn't required to run 
the command.

If the above is substantially correct, can someone mark the bug appropriately?
