If you see my code where I am resolving the problem you will see that I call
project.getBaseDir(). In principle this is not good kind of programming but I
haven't time to re-write the whole Apache ant code.

Unfortunately the second problem with System Properties is still existing. This
can be solved very easy with one helper class SystemUtil which to be instanced
for each ant instance. All calls to/from the System Properties in the existing
ant code to be replaced with that class like systemUtil.getUserDir():
   public class SystemUtil
      private String userDir;

      public String getUserDir()
         if(userDir == null)
            userDir = System.getProperty("user.dir");

         return userDir;

      public void setUserDir(String userDir)
         this.userDir = userDir;
With that code the problem with multi-tasking and multi-threads will be solved.
