So am I. Glenn, what error are you talking about? I had a small problem
with my mail (actually one of my home systems has gone totally nuts and
is sending out email dated from 1969-2099 and wrote garbage into my imap
server..) and some of it vanished from the face of the earth so I might
have missed the original problem here.

As far as I can tell from Windows and Solaris, everything is working as
expected... Now, it might be interesting to increase the parse tokens to
include ':' and ';' and '/' and '\' so that no matter how the build.xml
file was written, it'll work. But at first glance I'm opposed to that.
