A single $-sign is used by Ant to detect a property in the buildfile. If
there is no property found the $-sign is simply removed.

A double $-sign is used to escape this behaviour and simply use a real
$-sign somewhere in your buildfile. It is reeplaced with a single $-sign.

There is *no* magic with this, and putting $$ somewhere does not help you
with anything, if there is no need for a $-sign.

If you still have trouble with this IOException, it would be nice, if you
could send some more info.
