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.
See http://www.lua.org/source/5.2/liolib.c.html#lua_checkmode .

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.
