This is by design.

I've added the following blurb to the manual in the section talking about patterns:

In general, patterns are considered relative paths, relative to a task dependent
base directory (the dir attribute in the case of <fileset>).  Only files found
below that base directory are considered.  So while a pattern like ../foo.java is
possible, it will not match anything when applied since the base directory's parent 
is never scanned for files.
