I must have missed the original mail, sorry.

But the reason they do is not that it is the basedir of main-build.xml
- it is because you've use <ant>'s dir attribute.  See the table
"Basedir of the new project" in the manual for the Ant task, with dir
you fix the basedir of the build you invoke (and as a side effect of
all subbuilds of it).


<ant antfile="${project.base}/main-build.xml" target="default"
     output="${log.dir}\nightly-build.log" inheritall="false"/>
