Ant does allow : as a path separator in a spec string, how else would we be
cross platform? We do, however, downconver it to the platform specific value at
runtime, with special handling for c: paths on windows, and something else on
netware.

But remember that everything is a string unless ant knows to convert it to a
native platform. So if you work in the string-space, ant is not going to do any
work. This is what you are doing with your args to tinyvm

<arg value="-cp"/>
<arg value="C:\lejos.3.0.0-M4\classes\lejosrt.jar;build/classes"/>

you should use

<arg path="C:\lejos.3.0.0-M4\classes\lejosrt.jar;build/classes"/>

to get stuff converted.

Try this, if the problem goes away, please mark the bug as invalid.
