I apologize for not being clear earlier. The task program refers to the 
java class used as the custom ant task. The property file is being read 
using Ant's built-in property task. What I meant to say was that the 
java custom task class field corresponding to ${APPLICATION_GUID} 
property had junk/incorrect chars for its value.

I am afraid echoing is also returning the same junk/incorrect chars.
