Really? Two mild counterpoints:
1) It's *old*; 1.5.2 at least, and that's only because that's the oldest
version I happen to have lying around. It's quite similar to the
test_mutants oddness in some ways.
2) There's at least one other crasher in 2.1; the one in the compiler
where a variable is referenced in a class and in a contained method.
(I've actually run into that one).
But a "fix these crashers" release seems reasonable if there's someone
with the time to put it out (not me!).

Well me neither...
