Problem Description:
Using a function name of "initialize" in a component and referencing that method in another function in the same component causes run/compile time exception.

Steps to Reproduce:
test.cfc:
<cfcomponent output="false">
	<cffunction name="initialize" access="public" output="false" returntype="void">
	</cffunction>

	<cffunction name="out" access="public" output="false" returntype="void">
		<cfset initialize()>
	</cffunction>
</cfcomponent>

Then in page perform the following.

<cfset createobject("component", "test").initialize()>

Actual Result:

The error occurred in D:/websites/xxx/test.cfc: line 6

4 : 
5 : 	<cffunction name="out" access="public" output="false" returntype="void">
6 : 		<cfset initialize()>
7 : 	</cffunction>
8 : </cfcomponent>

Expected Result:
No run/compile time exception.

Any Workarounds:
Put "this." in front of the method in the "out" function.

<cfcomponent output="false">
	<cffunction name="initialize" access="public" output="false" returntype="void">
	</cffunction>

	<cffunction name="out" access="public" output="false" returntype="void">
		<cfset this.initialize()>
	</cffunction>
</cfcomponent>
