AFAIK it's a bug. As you say, an <ant> invocation should completely wrap 
the environment, unless you say it should inherit stuff... hmmm... but 
it inherits properties, not tasks.

Probably the system that checks for duplicate imports is not scoped.

Which brings us back to the initial "what is the basedir of the imported 
antfile" question.

What you show here is that now it fails to live up to the current rule, 
that the basedit is that of the antfile that has imported the library.

See if you can find a fix, it would be nice :-)
