  +You may need a bigger stack than default, especially if you are using the built in
  +XSLT engine. We recommend you use Apache Xalan; indeed, some tasks (JUnit report in XML,

  +These are caused by subtle incompatibilities between the Java1.4+ compiled
  +release; bugs in the Java runtime that Sun won't fix. Possible solutions:-
  +<ol>
  +<li>Upgrade your JVM.
  +<li>Recompile Ant on a Java1.2 machine
  +<li>Add <tt>-Djava.compiler=NONE</tt> to
  +the value of your ANT_OPTS environment variable. This turns the JIT off.
  +<li>Ignore the messages.
