While Ben's patch looks correct I think the user is mistaken.  ${xxx} is
substituted everywhere, including within quoted strings, it says so in the
docs (well it doesn't talk about {}, just $ expansion).  Ben's patch just
fixes the behaviour so that when ${ is seen, it considers everything up to
the next } as part of the variable name.

On systems that do user-private-groups group write might exist on the
directory.  Just an FYI.  This is a common problem with many programs
when you run in a user-private-group scheme.
