      Description

      While configuring a program with regex patterns to inventory filenames to a database, I discovered that after 6 attributes containing the "]" character to a single element, the values are not read reliably.

      this digester_conf.xml
      <toplevel>
      <stringset
      attr1="1]"
      attr2="2]"
      attr3="3]"
      attr4="4]"
      attr5="5]"
      attr6="6]"
      attr7="7]seven"
      attr8="8]!"
      attr9="9]"
      attr10="ten]"
      />
      </toplevel>

      results in output (attr7 has attr8 overlaid, attr9 has attr10 overlaid):
      String set:
      attr1 =1]
      attr2 =2]
      attr3 =3]
      attr4 =4]
      attr5 =5]
      attr6 =6]
      attr7 =8]!even
      attr8 =8]!
      attr9 =te
      attr10=ten]

      I used maven 2 to create an executable jar file. The same executable jar run on MacOS 10.4.11, java version "1.5.0_13" gives correct output.

      This indicates to me that the error may be in some layer lower than digester, but I think it will take a digester developer to isolate the component at fault and file a bug report on the lower level component.
