Ummm, I don't think so.  Actually, it works as designed.  mod_include
now does variable substitution so the user needs to escape the '$' to
pass it along to the shell.  Escaping the '{' works by accident - 
it causes the SSI variable to be terminated at just '$'.  Since this
isn't a valid variable, it gets passed along instead of being

There is a small change that I think I can make which will make the
originator's specific example work without change because of its use
of ':='.  I'll try it tomorrow and send the results.
