Hi Roman,

OK, so presumably a workaround is to provide individual macros with the 
names "foo.b", "foo.w" and so on, rather than just one macro.

Hmm, well the change was to make macros names consistent with other 
names.  ie if string was a valid name for a (pseudo) opcode or a label, 
then it could also be a valid name for a macro.  I appreciate however 
that this did break backwards compatibility.  So please could you try 
out the uploaded patch and let me know if it works for you.  (You will 
need to add the command line switch --no-dot-in-macro-names to assembler 
command line).
