Clover for Ant raises "Error finalising instrumentation"

The project will build and test fine without clover via ant clean build unittests. However, when try to integrate clover via ant -lib ejb-3.7.1.jar with.clover build unittests clover.report it ends up returning "Error finalising instrumentation" and the following stack trace:

clover Error finalising instrumentation:

clover ** Error(s) occurred and the instrumentation process can't continue.

It seems clover is doing its thing during the build because I see lines like this frequently in the log:

javac Compiling 205 source files to /myproject/classes
clover Updating existing database at '/myproject/.clover/clover3_1_6.db'.
clover Clover all over. Instrumented 2 files (1 package).
clover Elapsed time = 0.005 secs. (400 files/sec, 12,800 srclines/sec)
clover Processing files at 1.6 source level.

The exception:

[clover] Error finalising instrumentation:
[clover] java.io.IOException: Failed to move tmp registry file 
/myproject/.clover/clover3_1_6.db.tmp to final registry file

means that Clover was unable to rename file from '/myproject/.clover/clover3_1_6.db.tmp' to '/myproject/.clover/clover3_1_6.db'. This kind of error is usually thrown when a parallel build is configured (by a <parallel> task, for instance).

Clover currently does not support parallel compilation, so you have to disable it in your build.
