Proposed patch for issue
Process exceptions in macroexpand1 and wraps them in CompilerException with source,line,column information.

Also patch adds quotes around invalid symbol name in error message to make them more distinguishable from rest of message.

Patch 0001-CLJ-1169-proposed-patch.patch dated Feb 22 2013 causes several tests to fail. Run "./antsetup.sh" then "ant" to see which ones (or "mvn package").
