Nant succeeds but fails the task because of -1 error code

I'm a bamboo noob (currently doing evaluation). I'm trying to run a working very simple NAnt build. In the log, it looks like it completes, but it fails with this message:

30-Jun-2011 11:54:31 Failing task since return code was -1 while expected 0
I don't see any output from the Nant task itself.  The Nant build file does execute in the command line just fine.

Are you able to check what is the result code when you run it from the command line?

I get 0 from the command line. Hmmm. I also get the same result from bamboo when running msbuild on the same sln. Msbuild works from the command line with return code of 0 as well.

Can you file a support request with us at This sounds potentially like a bug.
