Global filtering via "filtering" attribute does not work with copy task

           Summary: Global filtering via "filtering" attribute does not work
                    with copy task
           Product: Ant
           Version: 1.4.1
          Platform: Sun
        OS/Version: Solaris
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Major
          Priority: Other
         Component: Core tasks
        AssignedTo: ant-dev@jakarta.apache.org
        ReportedBy: peterwlynch@yahoo.com


Global filtering does not work with copy task at all following instructions in 
the manual.

To reproduce, consider the following example:

1. Make a build.xml that contains the following:

<project name="test" default="test">
    <property file="build.properties" />
    <filterset id="filterconf" begintoken="@" endtoken="@">
	<filtersfile file="./test.properties"/>
    </filterset>
    <target name="test">
	<copy file="./test.file" tofile="./output" filtering="true">
        </copy>
    </target>
</project>


2. Create a file called test.properties that contains the following:

TEST_TOKEN=nobug

3. Create a file to copy called test.file that contains the folllowing:

Is there a bug?

@TEST_TOKEN@

4. Perform the following command:

ant -verbose

5. Output shows that the filter file is loaded initially, but there is no 
confirmation that replacement took place on test.file. Open the file called 
output and you will still see:

@TEST_TOKEN@

----------

no replacement was made!


I have confirmed a workaround although it seriously will bloat build files:

Write your copy tasks like this:


<copy file="./test.file" tofile="./output">
    <filterset begintoken="@" endtoken="@">
         <filtersfile file="./test.properties" />
    </filterset>
</copy>


In other words, nested filtersets still work, but the filtering attribute of 
the copy task does not.
