Ahhh, yes, that'll be it. The cache contains a copy of the ivy.xml file 
which will be the one with our correction in it.

FYI, Ivy caches all resources retrieved for all projects in the local 
cache so that it can work consistently across all projects. You'll 
notice that the build.xml does not then duplicate the resources to the 
project, it uses them in place.

This is rather nice, it means you can have multiple projects using 
foo.jar, but will have only one copy on your disk.
