overwrite="false" will only prevent your files from being overwritten
if they not only exist but are actually newer than the sources.

Run 'ant -debug -logfile foo.log' and investigate your logfile.  It is
going to include a list with "Adding baz as it is newer than
/target/baz" that will give you a hint if there are any problems with
your setup.
