Ant includes JARs in working directory

           Summary: Ant includes JARs in working directory
           Product: Ant
           Version: 1.6.1
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Windows NT/2K
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Minor
          Priority: Other
         Component: Core
        AssignedTo: dev@ant.apache.org
        ReportedBy: nsydenham@yahoo.co.uk


If ant is started from the same directory that includes any JAR files, those JAR
files are automatically added to the CLASSPATH. This means that any task cannot
then alter or delete those JARs as they are classed as being in use.

I think that the default should be to not include any unspecified JAR files.
Also, the documentation should be updated to include this gotcha.

I can confirm that no other process has a handle to the JARs in question which
only leaves ant. In addition, I can delete them using the Windows Explorer.
