The difference between this and #39122 is that my summary explains _why_ 
uptodate treats an outofdate target as uptodate.

Furthermore, the reason is different: #39122 is also about directories, but 
it's the target file that is a directory.

In my case the target is actually a timestamp file (for performance) that gets 
touched by the classes target after successful compilation. It's a source 
directory that causes problems.

Ok, it's nice if there is a working alternative solution, but I'd prefer to use 
standard tasks (easier to set up environments, continuity of support and so 
on). Thanks anyway.

Besides, I'd rather see bugs fixed instead of creating and using workarounds.
