Re: [platform-ant-dev] Possible bug in external tools variable expansion

Erik,

I can reproduce your problem and have logged it as a bug against
Ant-Platform (which includes the external tools framework).
See http://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=28431
Please add yourself as a cc to stay informed of the progress (or to attach a
patch :-) )
