I just tried cmd.exe from the command line, and it still stripped the quote
characters, so I can now blame Microsoft.  My solution was to do something like
this "-DFIXLVL=\&quot;Test\&quot;", and that seems to work, at least for
Windows.  While this is not an Ant bug, this kind of information would still be
useful in the Ant docs somewhere.

Thanks for your help, I've remarked the bug as invalid.
