      Description

      The s:if tag has the side effect of assigning to an existing object
      if the comparison is badly formed using = instead of ==

      <s:if test="user.id = 0">  
        //at this point the user.id is now 0 not its original value
      </s:if>
      

      even though this is clearly badly formed, the test should not assign anything to the object
