How to stop an IOException error using whilst using a combination of jython, pyro and ant?

So the wonderful low down on this doozie of a problem:

short version: We are building a distribution system for this item of software we're using. Basically we take out build artifact, store it on an ftp server which passes it to multiple clients which execute scripts to patch their servers.

Long version:

1 distribution server

multiple client servers

software: jython 2.5.1, ant 1.8.0, pyro 3.10

The distribution server has an FTP server and a PYRO client running on it. Each client server has a PRYO server running on it.

When the PYRO client is told to start the patch procedure then it reads a machine list which contains a list of all the client servers. Then connects to each of the PYRO servers one by one and execute the patch procedure. The procedure is: getPatch (gets the latest patch for that server), StopServer (stops the software that may or maynot be accessing what needs to be patched), Apply patch, StartServer. Each of the processes calls an ANT script that passes with some folder names and other config passes around. The fun part happens when you go to apply the patch. See below for error log. I had to remove the folder names because of NDA reasons.

This is where it gets interesting. Running each section of the procedure individually. i.e. running getPatch, StopServer, etc. one at a time manually. This bug doesn't happen. Physically goign to the machine and running the processes it doesn't happen. Only when we call all 4 of the processes one after the other. It occurs during the ApplyPatch phase when an ANT replace script is called on multiple files. We think it might have something to do with the JVM keeping hold of the file for a split second or 2. however this is meant to have been patched according to the bug notes on ant.

so in short:

distribution server ==> jython ==> pyro connection ==> client server ==> jython ==> ant script

Any help would be appreciated.

It appears that it's the FTP that's the problem. It's keeping a lock via jython on the individual folders. So when a new file is introduced it locks it into a un-deletable state. You can still edit the file i.e. run a replace script on it. however you can't delete it. Going to work on a different implementation of the ftp. i.e. use java/jython's version rather then ant.
