Subject: RE: Too wierd - Property "forgetting"

I've delved a little further into this, and this is what appears to be
happening (and which I didn't mention in my earlier post):

Script A is making REPEATED calls to different targets in Script B.  Script
B defines
${sportsbean.vers} as a project-level property (and many other ${xxx.vers}
properties as well).
It appears that the problem is that when calls are repeatedly made from one
ant script to another,
the values of these project-level properties is being forgotten.  That is,
the project-level properties are not properly evaluated on each trip

do an ant -version to make sure that you are running the same version on
both boxes; one looks more like a 1.4 instance to me
