Gsub doesn't handle literal #{} well

Reported by Lichorosario | April 12th, 2008 @ 09:27 AM | in After 1.7

Hi. I think this is a problem:

'#{first}'.gsub(/#{first}/i,'#{second}')

This should return '#{second}', but instead it returns'' (an empty string).

It seems that gsub can't use template-like strings in the replacement.
