Bug: Inherited variables are not evaluated correctly

TWiki does not assign variables as expected when the value of a newly created variable relates to a previously set variable.

Test case

   * Set A = value
   * Set B = %A%
   * Set C = %B%

results in

%A% having this value: value

%B% having this value: value

%C% having this value: value

It is expected that all variables have a value of value, however %C% has not (or hadn't by the time this topic was composed).

This may or may not be a bug in this TWiki version.
