build process hangs with a property calling itself

Ok, I found a way to reproduce the problem

Try the following build.properties file to reproduce the problem:
build.properties
----------------
project.src=${project.src}/src
project.src.bla=${project.src}/bla

if you try ant -v you should get messages up to
[property] Loading yourpath/build.properties
but after this line, there aren't any error message like the one with the 
circular reference indicated.

The fact that the second property calls the first one seems to be where lies 
the problem.

Now comment the line with the circular reference and everything should work 
fine.

The question now, is why don't we get any error message?
For information, I'm using Xerces and Xalan both declared in my classpath.
