If the compiler encounters a print(), it aborts the current trace,
i.e. it doesn't compile that piece of code. Try io.write instead
(which is compiled in beta3).

[LJ2 currently doesn't compile print() mainly because I'd need to
make print() resumable first -- it calls tonumber() in a loop.]

You could also have a look with -jv to see which parts of the code
have been compiled just before you see an error. Or selectively
stop functions from being compiled with

I'll look into this tomorrow.
