Well, you're right.  After extensive games played with my paths and my
build.xml, the following facts apply:

- If I fork, I see the path I expect.
- If I fork, my tests run successfully.
- If I don't fork, my tests fail on ClassNotFound errors.

I can solve this by setting all my classpath settings in my containing shell
environment.  I consider this to be a heinous workaround, but certainly
adequate for the moment.

Does it seem silly to want a way to ask a task "OK, what classpath are you
-really- using here?" ?  I'd really rather watch ant-dev a while longer before
I try to dink with it.
