The problem is that some C libraries crash when fopen is given invalid modes.
Lua 5.2 protected Lua from such annoying behavior by testing the modes it gets.

Lua 5.1 is no longer in development. The last release was 5.1.5.
There won't be another release of 5.1.

If you want this fixed, use Lua 5.2 or 5.3.
