      Description

      The 3 lines below will print two No-s and one Yes:
      #if('foo') Yes #else No #end
      #if(1) Yes #else
      No #end
      #if(true) Yes #else No #end

      while the 4 lines bellow will print two Yes-es as
      expected:
      #set($x = 'foo')
      #if($x) Yes #else No #end
      #set($x = 1)
      #if($x) Yes #else No
      #end

      Also, the 2 lines below will print false:
      #set($x = 'x' && true)
      $x

      (Please
      ignore possible false line breaks inserted by bugzilla.)
