Right, *unless* the task has been defined by a <taskdef> that comes
with a classpath definition of its own. And this is exactly what Nico
suggested the first time.

I vaguely remember that taskdefs with nested classpaths didn't work
correctly in Ant 1.2. William, could you please try to (re)define the
junit task with the correct classpath (containing JUnit itself) with
Ant 1.3 and see whether this makes any difference?
