Which task are you adding that attribute to? And why are you adding "." as the srcdir? Please post any relevant section from the build file.

Wow, a srcdir of '.' and a basedir of c:\ is bound to cause interesting results! If this is in the javac task, like I suspect, Ant will compile every .java file it finds on your C: drive!

You should, instead, create a directory and place everything for your app into that directory, including the build.xml file. Then cd to that directory before running ant!
