This issue can be closed. 

The issue isn't as straightforward as initially described. The issue is
actually to do with the way different platforms handle leading slashes in a
list of words supplied to the includes attribute.

So, if includes="/2001/*.* /2002/*.* /2003/*.*" then on Windows this will match
subdirectories with the matching names e.e.g  somesubdir/2001/*.* but on Linux
it does not. Linux behaviour seems reasonable, Windows behaviour not.

AFAIC, this was a bug in the build.xml not in ant, so I am happy to close this.
