Can't use := for variable assignment within a SQL-Statement

Description

i found a kind of bug in org.hibernate.engine.query.ParameterParser.java:
I have an exotic mysql-statement where I want to use mysql variables.
VERY SIMPLE example:
SET @pos=0;
SELECT @pos:=@pos+1 FROM TABLE;

Steps to reproduce:
Session s = sessionFactory.openSession();
s.createSQLQuery("SET @pos=0").executeUpdate();
SQLQuery qry = s.createSQLQuery("select @pos:=@pos from SomeTable");
List lst = qry.list();

Exception:
org.hibernate.QueryException: Space is not allowed after parameter prefix ':' 'SELECT @pos:=@pos+1 FROM TABLE'
at org.hibernate.engine.query.ParameterParser.parse(ParameterParser.java:68)
...
...

Suggested fix:
ParameterParser Lines 62 to 73:
if (c == ':' && (indx + 1 >= stringLength || sqlString.charAt(indx + 1) != '=')) {
// named parameter
int right = StringHelper.firstIndexOfChar( sqlString, ParserHelper.HQL_SEPARATORS, indx + 1 );
int chopLocation = right < 0 ? sqlString.length() : right;
String param = sqlString.substring( indx + 1, chopLocation );
if ( StringHelper.isEmpty( param ) ) {
throw new QueryException("Space is not allowed after parameter prefix ':' '"
+ sqlString + "'");
}
recognizer.namedParameter( param, indx );
indx = chopLocation - 1;
}

Environment

MySQL Datasource, Hibernate 3.2.4.sp1
