Subject Re: AW: Ant and Norton Antivirus 2004 on XP
Date Mon, 08 Dec 2003 22:20:30 GMT
Thanks, Antoine.  I'n running ant 1.5.4 on XP with Service Pack 1.   I 
sent an email to Symantec, but they have no user fourm that I can find, so 
I guess I have to wait til they wish to get back to me.   I'm a not a very 
happy camper at the moment, but I have no hard evidence to point an 
accusatory finger at.  I might take some time and put a dev build of ant 
on and see if I can narrow down where the pause occurs.  It must be very 
early in the ant startup, however.
