Always glad to help ;-)

Maybe this is just showing good caching ;-) OK, ok, maybe not that
funny. But in general, it can be tricky to devise a test case that
simulate real world usage, so maybe compiling the same 15 files again
and again isn't triggering the same code the same way?

Note that I'm not saying Ant is leak free. Most recent leaks have been
fixed by non-regular contributors bugged enough by the leaks. We just
hope you've reached that point that you'd fix Ant for us! ;-) --DD
