Could you send us the console output when running Ant in verbose mode?

Subject: Retrieve symlink="true" on Windows


We are attempting to implement our build on Windows after having the ant+ivy 
solution working well on Linux for about a week now. We were hoping to use 
symlinking for compile-time dependencies as on Linux, but we are getting odd 
behavior. After jumping through a few hoops with Cygwin 1.7, Ivy appears to be 
creating working symlinks in our classpath directory for each project. However 
it also appears to be copying the .jar files also! (see attached jpg)

Has anyone seen this before or have experience with using Ivy symlinks on 
Windows? Thanks.
