I tend to agree with you - primarily because a recompliation did not fix
anything! I eagerly await a fix to the "syntax analysis" code which, as
you've mentioned, is not scheduled for 21.4.4. I would hope that it is high
up on the fix list and is considered a high priority issue. In the meantime,
I'm back to 21.1.12.
