      Description

      The underlying Java Map object uses Equals to determine if two keys are the same. But a java String is not equal to a GString.

      Here is an example script and it's output:
      def animalType = "dog"
      def map = [:]
      map.put(animalType, "Spike")

      println ("key = $animalType")
      println ("animalName = " + map.get("dog")) // 1
      println "animalName = " + map.get("$animalType") // 2
      println "animalName = " + map.get("${animalType}") // 3
      println "animalName = " + map.get(animalType) // 4

      C:\groovy>groovy -version
      Groovy Version: 1.0-jsr-02 JVM: 1.4.2_06-b03
      C:\groovy>groovy test.groovy
      key = dog
      animalName = Spike
      animalName = null
      animalName = null
      animalName = Spike

      Notice the null output for lines 2 and 3.
