No, it has nothing to do with these changes. The bulk of these changes affect 
the jar and manifest tasks which use Ant's Manifest class. The ejbjar task, 
on the other hand, since it already requires JDK 1.2+, uses the JDK Manifest 
class, which has slightly different behaviour (and bugs). See, for instance, 
this bug report

If you follow the spec link in that bug report you will note that a valid 
manifest MUST have a Manifest-Version header. I'm not sure if the JDK's 
manifest class is requiring that field but you should have it in your 
manifests. You also need to be careful to end your manifest with new lines.
