If I execute the following task repeatedly it will always be executed because the up to data check fails and reports that the instance property changed.:

task gradlebug(type: Gradlebug) {
outDir file('bug')

class Gradlebug extends ConventionTask {
SomeClass instance = new SomeClass();

File outDir

void doSomething() {
println "done"

class SomeClass implements Serializable {

boolean equals(Object o) {
println getClass().getClassLoader()
println o.getClass().getClassLoader()
return getClass() == o.getClass();

The problem did not exist with 1.10, but exists in 1.11 and 1.12. For 1.10 the `ClassLoader`s of `SomeClass` are the same instance, starting with 1.11 they are different instances which causes the `getClass() == o.getClass()` check to return false.
