Fix Version/s: 1.8.1
Environment:java version "1.6.0_24"

Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 19.1-b02, mixed mode)
The following assertions work as expected in groovy 1.7.10, but fail in groovy 1.8.0
foo == foo happens to work, which leads me to believe that == tests for object identity first.
I can workaround by testing Set equality using brute force, but it's very surprising.
