I'm using Ant on a Windows NT system to checkout, build, and jar a Java-based project. When I try and use the deltree or delete tasks to clean up files that I dont need any more I get the error : build.xml:<line>: unable to delete <file>.

All of the other tasks work fine.

The error only seems to occur when I try and delete files or directories that I used in the classpath variable in a javac task.

Has anyone else had this problem? Is there a workaround?
