Good catch.

Good catch.

I think that the copy is actually the problem. Each time the jars are 
copied, they have a new date/time stamp. Signing them as they are copied 
does not make the problem worse. It merely modifies them a bit more.

I could be wrong.

Perhaps the solution is to copy local jars and sign them to a location 
that is ignored by clean. For example: project/target/jars. And add a 
"clobber" target to clean it and everything else via clobber.extra (to 
clobber jsword/target/osis/*).

The target/ant/jars would only contain the project jar(s).
