noskule reported to me a possible bug which showed up when using FoxEdit
to load PTVs into an edit form, but which is not related to fox or

When PageTextVar is called, and the PTV value contains {$FullName}, the
returned string for {$FullName} is expanded to {GroupName.PageName$FullName}

OTOH when the value contains string {*$FullName} it is returned as
{*$FullName}, unchanged, as what I expect it should.

See http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/Test/FormPTVTest
where two test PTVs are loaded into text input controls via
(:input defaults source=...:)

The substitition of {$FullName} to {Test.FormPTVTest$FullName} is
done in PmWiki's Qualify function, which function PageTextVar calls.
