Error creating listener of type 'JetBrains.BuildServer.NAntLoggers.NAntListener' - Teamcity 5.1.4 w/ nant 0.85

Recently upgraded to TeamCity 5.1.4, and now builds are failing. I have tried:

1. upgrading nant to 0.90 alpha 1
2. reinstalling the build agent manually.

Still not resolved. Below is complete output from build log (error in bold).

Any help would be appreciated.

Please try running nant with debug options enabled to see more details of your issue.
Will NAnt work if you try running sample hello-world build script?

To enable debug, add:
to the additional command line arguments section.

Do you use custom NAnt arguments? Please attach screenshot of your NAnt setting.

TeamCity is compatible with NAnt 0.86 and newer. I believe the oldest supported version of NAnt is "nant-0.85-nightly-2006-04-30"
