1.5.x works on both platforms as most bugs in Ant are cross-platform,
too.

Maybe you've picked up a CVS HEAD version after Peter Reilly has
committed a change to the Ant task that will use the last value if
multiple properties of the same name have been added to it.  To be
sure, you'll need a CVS snapshot before "Wed Sep 10 12:57:19 2003 UTC"
- this should fail on all platforms.

This means that the Axis build should work in Sam's nightly Gump (on
his home Linux box, not nagoya, BTW) is supposed to pass.  The Gump
installation on my Linux machine has worked fine last night as well.

So basically your <foreach> task works with 1.5.x by accident and may
work with 1.6 once it is released.  *may* as we've not decided yet
whether the patch will be left in as it breaks backwards compatibility
in a subtle way (that could be considered fixing a bug).

If you want to be save, don't reuse the Ant instance.

Cheers
