      Description

      I have noticed that sometimes macros do not get evaluated after Velocity has
      just been started. A subsequent request for the same resource produces a valid
      document, where macros are now correctly evaluated.

      Here's an example: I have a WAP-Mail webapp, which runs on Tomcat 3.3a. It uses
      Velocity to render the content, and the Velocity versions I have used are 1.2-
      dep, 1.3-dep and 1.3.1-dep. This problem occurs with all of these versions.

      The first request should produce a message list (there's an autologin feature,
      so the message list page is the first one being accessed). Here's the most
      relevant part of the content:
