As it says, I assume your listener attempted to System.out.println() 
something. Is this the case? If so, think about what happens. Something 
generates output to System.out. This is redirected to the Ant message event 
system and sent to your listener. If the listener (or any class it uses) 
accesses System.out while processing that message, there will be an infinite 
loop. The Ant message event system detects that case and terminates the loop.

Remove any usage of System.out in your listener and it should be OK. The 
stacktrace can probably help you trackdown where this is happening.
