I had the same problem:

INSERT INTO TBU (PERIODID,BUID,NAME,ARCHIVE) VALUES (0,'---','---',0);

failed, because of the "--" in the statement.

Looking at the target source:
org.apache.tools.ant.taskdefs.SQLExec.runStatements() - Line 527
the solution is quite simple:

I used keepformat="true" and removed all comments from the SQL-Script.
Work's fine :)
