Because -lib doesn't work that way 8-)

Ant's launcher constructs a new classloader containing the stuff from
-lib and loads Ant's Main class using that classloader.

If it must be the system classloader that you use, use CLASSPATH
directly.  Most likely you could use the classloader that loaded your
task instead of the system classloader, though.  This one should contain
all your -lib parts.
