I can't find anything in the LRM specifying the ordering of multiple assignments (I even checked online this time!), so I don't think you can have too many expectations about what that snippet does. FWIW LuaJIT also sets a to 1.
Perhaps there should be a note in the LRM or PiL saying that the order is undefined?
