The issue is that loading the antlib, probably using <typedef> is enough 
to trigger the problem. in Ivy's antlib.xm they use <taskdef 
resource="org/antlib/" /> to pull in the properties 
file. Somehow that's enough to force a loading in of the classes 
themselves, which raises the problem. That is, the build is failing not 
when I use the the new task, but when I typedef the antlib.
