[REBOL] Frank's Looper Crash Answer

Hi Frank, this is caused by an internal recursion limit that is being reached. If the recursion goes too deep in some functions (like those you mention), and a recycle occurs, this crash happens. For now, avoid deeper recursion. We've known about this problem for some time, and a fix has been made. Unfortunately, it's part of a significant set of experimental changes, and has not yet been released, although we do intend to do so. On a different topic, when might we see another one of those great Frank Sievertsen REBOL games? -Carl
