Understand "foo [text]" as Fooing.  
Check Fooing: if there is a token of the topic understood in the Table of Foo, do nothing.

Should probably be considered Severe rather than Critical, since an author can work around it. Also, I apologize for having missed the testing command which would be something along the lines of "foo x".

On the Mac IDE (or other Glulxe interpreters), this displays an error:

Glulxe fatal error: Memory access out of range (-6EF6FAFC)

A memory error shouldn't crash the Gnome IDE. (Possibly the Glulxe interpreter on Linux was compiled without the VERIFY_MEMORY_ACCESS flag? That flag should really be turned on for all Glulxe builds these days.)

I can't reproduce this crash by following the above instructions (including the testing command.) I don't even get the Glulxe fatal error...

Nonetheless, I'll make sure VERIFY_MEMORY_ACCESS is defined when compiling Glulxe.
