The following patch appears to fix the problem, although I'm not very
comfortable with it.  This business of forming variable names by
concatenating a macro expansion with a static string makes me nervous
because I don't understand the quoting implications.  I'm worried that
this is just going to break again.  I'd love to see this class reworked to
use a more obvious and clear approach to this.
