1. filelocks are an essential part of windows. IF a file is loaded (like 
a JAR in a running java app), then you cant delete it overwrite it.

2. Clearcase is an odd filesystem. Sometimes it is quirky

My recommendation: dont build different versions in the same directory, 
not once clearcase and windows are involved. Have two vobs, or set up 
your build to use a different classes dir on the second build, 
preferably a non-clearcase filesystem

ant -Dclasses.dir=C:\\scratch\project1\classes
