ICE when breaking outer loop from switch statement
Stumbled into this today:

	http://d.puremagic.com/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=9068

A workaround is to put the loop in its own function and do a return
instead of "break X". Or an uglier workaround is to use a boolean flag
checked right after the switch statement.

In my case, I didn't have much to do after the foreach anyway, so the
first workaround suffices. In any case, this is a rather ugly bug.

Other workarounds are to include the code that is supposed to be 
executed after the loop inside the conditional that was supposed to 
guard the break and then return instead, or to just use goto.

Yup.
