Summary0001523: Wayward parentheses not always caught
DescriptionSometimes extra parentheses trigger an internal compiler error or are accepted without a Problem message despite being invalid code (in the second example below, trying to name the object "zonk()" correctly yields a Problem message saying names cannot contain parentheses). In the third example below, a Problem message is issued followed by an internal error.
Minimal Source Text To Reproduce
[ Internal error: ]

"Foo" by Bar.
Zog is a room.
The player unlocks( the player.

[ No Problem message: ]

"Foo" by Bar.
Zog is a room.
Wug is a kind of thing. Some wugs are defined by the Table of Wuggitude.

Table of Wuggitude

[ Problem message + internal error: ]

"Foo" by Bar.
Zog is a room.
This is the blugg(le rule: do nothing.
TagsNo tags attached.
Effect(critical) Compiler reports internal error

The internal error message:

Problem. An internal error has occurred: Bracket mismatch when registering. The current sentence is 'The player unlocks (the player' ; the error was detected at line 613 of "inform7/Chapter 10/Excerpt Meanings.w". This should never happen, and I am now halting in abject failure.

Two distinct bugs here (the first two were one case, the third the other). Fixed.
