Well, then you didn't use the right keywords 8-)

Generally, JUnit advocates are going to tell you that you are trying
to do the wrong thing in the first place as unit tests are supposed to
be independent of each other.

Now to your problem:

An alternative to your approach is to explicitly use <test> elements
for the tests that need a certain order and exclude them from the
<batchtest> that contains the rest.

With Ant 1.6beta, all necessary information is inside the XML reports,
but I don't think that <junitreport> uses it right now (an attribute
has been added to the test elements).  If you use the beta and modify
the XSLs to use the new attribute, your reports should work as well.
