the "modified in the future" warning applies to the source file, not the target
file (Ant won't complain about them).

overwrite="true" means always overwrite, while overwrite="false" means that
files will still be overwritten if the source file is newer than the target

I've setup several tests with the source modified in the future and Ant didn't
overwrite targets that are even more in the future.  I may be misunderstanding
this report, but it looks as if things were working as documented and expected.
