Subject: core Task 'exec' start Invalid switch - /B

<target name="exec">      
      <echo message="PSEXEC is running..."/>
      <exec executable="start">          
        <arg line="/WAIT /B"/>                
                <arg value="psexec"/>
                <arg line=" \\${RHOST} -u ${USER} -p ${PASSWORD} ${CMD}

/B is a valid switch for start ,but there is error using ant exec task,why
is that ?

<arg line=" \\${RHOST} -u ${USER} -p ${PASSWORD} ${CMD} ${ARG} >rd.log
