You are right, the problem was with the compiler (TDM-GCC 4.6.? - both
Lua 5.1 and 5.2 were affected). I updated my GCC installation to TDM-GCC
4.7.1 some time ago (~1yr?) and the problem was solved IIRC.

As long as the bug is the same, simply calling `error` from the
interpreter caused the crash (most probably some bug with the
implementation of setjmp/longjmp) so it should be easy to test as soon
as I find the time to recompile Lua. I hope tomorrow or the next day.

Right now I have difficulties in keeping my eyes open - I had to wake up
at 5:00 and I worked at school from 7:30 to 19:00 + commuting time -
really an exhausting workday :-)
