Note: also occurs if I use the plain slice method
Tried this on OS X and Linux.

    Not a bug. $x(3,:) is a live slice into $x, so as the
    internal division loop proceeds, $x(3,:) gets set to 1 (when
    divided by itself) and all elements encountered after that
    get divided by 1 i.e. stay unchanged.

    Solution: sever link of slice. With current niceslice:

    $x /= $x(3,:;|); # (...;|) implies sever

    OK you are right, this is the designed behaviour :-)

    I was stupidly thinking it should copy $spec(3,:) before applying the /=
    operator to $spec.

    Short on neurons today!
