I confirm this FmtPagename() operation.  Seems like a bug to me, but
maybe I'm missing something...

This code:

$foo = FmtPagename('{Test.PV$Name}', 'Test.PV');
echo "foo=$foo<br>\n";
$bar = FmtPagename('{$Name}.xyz', 'Test.PV');
echo "bar=$bar<br>\n";

results in this output:


This doesn't seem consistent to me.  Should I make a PITS entry or is
there some reason why this needs to stay this way?
