Fixed in 491df810
Verified with the package:
1. create file /tmp/test.properties using following content:
augtool> set /augeas/load/Properties/lens Properties.lns
augtool> set /augeas/load/Properties/incl[last()+1] /tmp/test.properties
augtool> print /augeas//error
augtool> print /files/tmp/test.properties/
/files/tmp/test.properties/tomcat.util.scan.DefaultJarScanner.jarsToSkip = " < multi > "
Works as expected. So verified.
