Import not working with relative paths and symlinks

           Summary: Import not working with relative paths and symlinks
           Product: Ant
           Version: 1.6.2
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Major
          Priority: Other
         Component: Core tasks
        AssignedTo: dev@ant.apache.org
        ReportedBy: ddevienne@lgc.com


A build file at the top level (in directory .../acme/) delegates to another 
build file in src/lib2/ (.../acme/src/lib2), but src/ is a symlink 
to ../acme_src (which thus resolves to .../acme_src using getCanonicalPath). 
The build file in src/lib2/ imports ../../config/recurse.xml 
(.../acme/config/recurse.xml), but this fails, because apparently the basedir 
of src/lib2/build.xml was assigned after a getCanonicalPath() call.

Note the symlink mimicks a ClearCase view with several vobs linked together. 
Both acme and acme_src are ClearCase vobs. On Linux, acme/src is a symlink 
to ../acme_src, but not on Windows, which is why I'd really 
like ../../config/recurse.xml to be found even when traversing symlinks.

Is this a bug we can solve? I thought after Jesse's patch that this issue was 
resolved. Thanks, --DD

PS: I'll attach a build file that sets up the environment, and a session log 
that demonstrates the step to reproduce the issue on a linux system.
