Mixing <ant> and <subant> causes basedir to become confused





------- Additional Comments From robert.watkins@suncorp.com.au  2004-06-18 13:06 -------
Okay, that makes sense; it's probably worth highlighting in the doco for <ant>
that setting the basedir treats it like a user-defined property; it wasn't that
clear.

A quick test showed that calling 'ant -Dbasedir=.' on the second build script
gave  the same behaviour, so it is consistent.

Another workaround is to not trust the basedir, but use the ant.file property to
determine the working directory.
