[Issue 754] New: hex strings crash DMD when reporting syntax errors
http://d.puremagic.com/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=754

          Summary: hex strings crash DMD when reporting syntax errors
          Product: D
          Version: 0.178
         Platform: PC
       OS/Version: Windows
           Status: NEW
         Keywords: ice-on-invalid-code
         Severity: normal
         Priority: P2
        Component: DMD
       AssignedTo: bugzilla@digitalmars.com
       ReportedBy: luismarques@gmail.com


The following invalid source crashes DMD 0.178

void main()
{
   x"EF BB BF";
}

But the following does not:

1) valid source compiles with success:
void main()
{
   char[] x = x"EF BB BF";
}

2) variant of invalid gives error with success:
void main()
{
   x"00 BB BF";
}

You may have different results, as it seems to be a stray pointer problem.

I can't reproduce this on Linux - considering the nature of the bug that isn't 
surprising at all - however there is definitely something wrong with the error 
reporting:

x"AA BB 00 CC DD";

results in the incomplete error message:
a.d(1): Declaration expected, not '"\u00aa\u00bb"'
