Yes.  Visual C++ 7.1.  I just created a console project, added all the
files, compiled, and ran a Debug build.

for c in next,mytable do print(c) end



and then hangs.

BTW, I'm probably way late to the discussion, but the removal of the "for k
in table" syntax makes default table iteration ugly.  (I actually didn't
know about it...)  Just my rather sad opinion...
