Ok, perhaps I misunderstood the original request. I thought he wanted to 
keep the sample files, since those were the ones that generated the others.

If the problem is getting both sets of files, it should be doable with a 
single fileset.

         <fileset src="${src.dir}">
                     <mapper type="glob" from="sample.*" to="*" />
                     <mapper type="glob" from="*" to="sample.*" />

This appears to get around the "file already deleted" problem you 
mentioned, Diane. In my tests, the <delete> task did not prematurely delete 
the individual files before the whole fileset had been processed by 
DirectoryScanner. I don't know if that is true for all tasks which might 
change the contents of the fileset, though.
