When using variable references in ALR replacement text, the variables are not being replaced. For instance, create a task, command "do something", which outputs "[this is a test]". Create an integer variable called "var1", set its value to 1.
Create an ALR for "[this is a test]" and replace it with "[sample output %var1%]"
Create another ALR replacement for "[sample output 1]" and replace it with "Final output 1"
When this is run, I get the following:

>do something
[sample output %var1%]

In v4 the variable would be replaced and the result would be "Final output 1"
