+ If I have a parameter I want to use as part of an apply/exec/execon task and it contains
quotes, I have to pass it as a value, not as part of a line.  If I pass it as part of a line,
then the quotes get stripped.  In practice, this is a problem because we're compiling with
GCC and we have rather extensive properties defined with data like:
+ 
+    -DVERSION_STRING="1.0.0" -DBUILD_STRING="51"
+ 
+ I've put together a demonstration project.  It uses echo for the executable, and it obviously
strips the quotes from an otherwise valid parameter.  The behavior is consistent with all
three tasks noted.

+ <project name="applyBug" default="all">
+ 
+  <property name="argline" value="-Dsomevar=&quot;a quoted value&quot;"/>
+ 
+  <target name="all" depends="doApply,doExecOn,doExec"/>
+ 
+ <target name="doApply">
+  <apply dest="${basedir}" executable="echo">
+   <arg line="${argline}"/>
+   <fileset dir="${basedir}">
+    <patternset includes="*.c"/>
+   </fileset>
+   <mapper type="glob" from="*.c" to="*.o"/>
+  </apply>
+ </target>
+ 
+ <target name="doExecOn">
+  <execon executable="echo">
+   <arg line="${argline}"/>
+   <fileset dir="${basedir}">
+    <patternset includes="*.c"/>
+   </fileset>
+  </execon>
+ </target>
+ 
+ <target name="doExec">
+  <exec executable="echo">
+   <arg line="${argline} file2.c file2.c"/>
+  </exec>
+ </target>
+ 
+ </project>
