Problem Description: If a function expression is set to a structure and referenced with the bracket notation it cannot be run.

Steps to Reproduce:

test=structNew();{ return 1; };
test["two"]=function(){ return 2; };

Actual Result:

Invalid CFML construct found on line 7 at column 25.

ColdFusion was looking at the following text:

The CFML compiler was processing:

An expression that began on line 7, column 13.
The expression might be missing an ending #, for example, #expr instead of #expr#.
The body of a cfoutput tag beginning on line 6, column 2.

Expected Result:

Any Workarounds:

Using invoke i.e. invoke(struct, "property").
