it depends upon how the dependencies has been set up i.e. if the file is in
use by another task when the delete task gets executed it could be a
problem. I noticed most of the clean up examples place that as the main
entry point with a whole string f dependencies.

kinda - it is a "feature" of windows OS. If there is a filedescriptor open
that still points to jar then it can be deleted. Which means somewhere in
ant we are not closing a stream ....
