This seems easily solvable by flushing to a log file as it goes without 
buffering.  Have you tried this?  And?

I'm not following what you mean.  Could you provide an example of how 
some tasks are reported differently than others?

Yes, there have been known issues with this type of thing, but I'm 
unsure of exactly where it stands now.  Its non-trivial to solve I 
believe, but it seems that pushing in another level when you get a new 
project started (or the <ant> task is encountered) could potentially 
solve this?
