It's probably an issue with your Java VM.  Ant retrieves the file name
from the OS via File.list() and later tries "new File(...).delete()".
In your case the list call returns a file name that isn't handeled by
the File constructor.

I just tried and don't have any problems with German umlauts in file
names on my Linux or Mac systems.
