           Summary: xbuild does not accept properties containing ':'
                    passed by CLI..

I call xbuild with responce file and receive same looking error:

MSBUILD: error MSBUILD0005: Invalid syntax. Property name and value expected as
<prop name>=[<prop value>]

responce file contained a line: /property:foo=";"

The issue here are:
- not stated where parse error were
- does not support ; property value

I also checked it with only one property from commandline:
xbuild /p:aaa=";" foo.proj
the same error was reported.

+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #562056 +++
Calling xbuild defining a property containing ':' at command line, causes the
folowing error:

[root at host dir]# /usr/bin/xbuild /p:SomeProp=22:22:00
MSBUILD: error MSBUILD0005: Property name and value expected as /p:<prop
name>=<prop value>
