of course you never use it. it won't work.
the point of the email is that writing an invalid statement should
trigger only an error message. It should not trigger the segfault.
It looks like the segfault is specific to 3.0.1 since your and Marc both report
that you don't see the segfault on 3.0.2
I will tell the student to upgrade to 3.0.2 immediately.
