Windows environment information incorrect, or task is broken.

           Summary: Windows environment information incorrect, or task is
                    broken.
           Product: Ant
           Version: 1.5.1
          Platform: PC
               URL: http://jakarta.apache.org/ant/manual/CoreTasks/property.
                    html
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Minor
          Priority: Other
         Component: Documentation
        AssignedTo: ant-dev@jakarta.apache.org
        ReportedBy: malachi@eoti.org


The section regarding "user.home" says:


since the "user.home" property is defined by the Java virtual machine to be your 
home directory. This technique is more appropriate for Unix than Windows since 
the notion of a home directory doesn't exist on Windows. On the JVM that I 
tested, the home directory on Windows is "C:\". Different JVM implementations 
may use other values for the home directory on Windows.




Although I do not know which JVM they were using, Sun's implementation always 
sets the user.home to {WINDOWS}\Documents and Settings\{username}.  Could have 
been a problem with their environment, rather than the JDK.
