Hi all,

thank you very much for your help. I'm using Ant 1.3 on NT 4, so 
that's not the problem.

But I found a workaround. Usually I am not using the standard shell. 
When I switched to Windows' command prompt, everything worked fine! 
So I wrote my own, very simple ant.bat along the lines of the 
documentation ("Running Ant by Hand"), and everything is fine.

I did not bother searching for the cause of the problem, however. 
Time is running short...

It's a good feeling receiving help that fast. Thanks.
