replaceregexp fails to insert '/' characters

           Summary: replaceregexp fails to insert '/' characters
           Product: Ant
           Version: 1.6.2
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows NT/2K
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Minor
          Priority: Other
         Component: Optional Tasks
        AssignedTo: dev@ant.apache.org
        ReportedBy: dbd@smart.net


When using ${basedir} in replacement, appropriate '/' characters are not 
inserted. Example:
<project ... basedir=".." ...>

<target name="copy">
  <copy todir="${basedir}/src/to" file="${basedir}/src/from/testfile.xml"
        overwrite-"yes"
        />
</target>
<target name="edit" depends="copy">
  <replaceregexp pattern="C:/original/pattern" replace="${basedir}/x/y/z">
     <fileset file="${basedir}/src/to/testfile.xml"/>
  </replaceregexp>
</target>
</project>

If this is run from directory 'C:\projects\TestBug\src\from', the value of 
${basedir} should be "C:/projects/TestBug/src", and the replacement should read:
"C:/projects/TestBug/src/x/y/z". Instead, the replacement does 
read: "C:projectsTestBugsrc/x/y/z". 

Circumvention: Annoying and inelegant, but any property which is fully defined 
will work ok instead of ${basedir}.  Note that defining basedir explicitly on 
the project definition also does not work.
