What is happening here is that the lexical analyser reads the "KF"
token on the penultimate line, but the parser never sees it.
This must be related to the token-lookahead code in main/src/gram.[yc]
(the token() function). The R_ParseFile function works by repeated
calls to R_Parse1File, which parses single expressions in the file and
R_Parse1File starts with ParseInit(), which as one of its first duties
sets SavedToken = 0. So if a token is saved and not used at the end of
one expression, it gets discarded.
So the bug is one of two (or both):
1) There's a bug in the readahead logic (this essentially works by
counting if's, else's, braces and newlines, so it would be no wonder
if your code tickled it)
2) It is wrong to assume that there's no initial saved token when
parsing 2nd and subsequent expressions in a file.
I think #1 is certainly present, because there should be no reason
to read past the terminating brace in your ARMA() function to detect
the end of it, but I'm not sure that you can't get other examples
where readahead will happen legally.
