Main {
MfgCVCData "0xABCD";

crashes the compiler.

Main {
MfgCVCData 0xABCD;

works fine. Happens with both 0.9.5 and 0.9.6.

The crash is:

    I can confirm this crash. I looked at the code for a while, but I can't figure it out. I didn't write this program; I just adopted it when it was abandoned.

    I'm moving this to the Bugs tracker, since there is no patch attached.
