I have something equivalent to this in my code:
mylist = ['x','y'
(the real code has much longer contents, hence the line break ;-)
I think this should throw a parse error 'cos there's a missing comma.
What actually happens is it ends up as:
mylist = ['x','yz']
which is _really_ non-intuitive. I spent a good few hours trying to find the
of an exception in the Squishdot product for Zope until I noticed this.
I note that:
mystring = 'x''y'
is also legal, which I suspect is the roundabout source of this problem.
Sure that should raise an error and only the following should give the result
that that does:
mystring = 'x'+'y'
