I just tested 1.6.5 with 2.0.0-beta2 on Windows XP and it worked fine.
So it doesn't seem that ivy is incompatible with ant 1.6.5 in general.
But, it is strange that your combination of OS, ant and ivy does not
work. What is the output of ant -v (version 1.6.5 and ivy in
~/.ant/lib)? I am also curious to see the value of ${user.home}.
