I have no idea what this jar might do and I've never heard of a jar
like this.

I'd simply suggest you try building with 1.7 and stick with it if it
works, which it most probably will.

You could compare your class to the one found in subversion
and try to trace back changes.

1.5.1 is very old and I think it predates Windows XP - and I vaguely
recall we had problems detecting XP as a "modern" windows (as opposed
to win9x).  Yes, Ant 1.7 works fine on XP.
