In Ant 1.3, id the debug attribute was not
specified to <javac>, the -debug flag was not 
included in the javac command line.  In Ant 1.4,
if debug attribute is not speficied to <javac>
-g:none is added to the javac command line.
Good or bad, this is the cause for the change
in class file size.

Use ant -debug and notice the difference in
the javac command line that is being used.
