When writing a .(dot/period) by itself at the start of a line somewhere in the
declarations, the server will crash when performing a sytax check. This is
because the .(dot/period) symbol is used as a special symbol in the current
communication protocal between the GUI and the server.
This problem will be fixed with the new SOAP interface between the GUI and engine.
This cannot be fixed without fixing the protocol (by introducing escape
sequences). Since we are working on a completely new version of the SOAP
protocol, I will assign this bug to Ulrik.
This bug will be fixed with the introduction of SOAP protocol for the
communication between the GUI and the VerificationEngine.
Reopening the bug for 3.5.
I will try to fix this.
