Unfortunatly it appears that bugs fixed previously in CVS came back in this
release.  Most notably the following bug I sent to the list back in
April and was fixed by grabbing the latest from CVS at that time.
I have the following bit of text in a velocity template:
#if (${OBJECT_TYPE} == "collection")
   * Calls setIntersection with windowStart and windowEnd set to
   * PCFunctions.MIN_VALUE and PCFunctions.MAX_VALUE, respectively.
   * @see #setIntersection(PC${NAME}StepFunction, long, long)

When I run Velocity on the file I get the following:
[FATAL]: Problem merging template(Function): Encountered "Intersection" at
line 1079, column 15.
Was expecting one of:
    "(" ...
    <WHITESPACE> ...

I tried changing it to \#setIntersection, then my output contained the
backslash as well.  Is there anyway around this, short of setting a variable
to #set and using that in my template?
