It's not just mee seeing this then?

I did my first anon CVS checkout yesterday. I use Blackdown JDK-1.1.7 on
x86 Linux-2.0.36.

Some poking around revealed that the source in jakarta-tools
does _NOT_ match what's in ant.jar!

(In particular, that stack trace does not make sense.)

Manually unpacking the jar, compiling the supplied, then
repacking the jar with the replaced class file was enough to get build
working again.

Note that, of course, this same problem prevented a simple rebuild of
ant itself.

QA question for the committers: is it not possible to have commits
automatically tested before acceptance?
