           Summary: Harden Ant to cope with null system properties
           Product: Ant
           Version: 1.7.0
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P2
         Component: Core
        AssignedTo: dev@ant.apache.org
        ReportedBy: robertdw@twasink.net


As Ant gets picked up and used embedded in other projects, it needs to have
better defensive checks. Currently, configuring a new Project instance fails
miserably if a System property is set to null (e.g. through bad code elsewhere).

To fix this, PropertyHelper.setProperty() needs a defensive null check for the
value parameter.

(PropertyHelper.setNewProperty() already has this check!)
