Weird XXX comment in pp_ctl.c
Message ID:
S_run_user_filter in pp_ctl.c contains this comment:

/* I was having segfault trouble under Linux 2.2.5 after a
    parse error occurred.  (Had to hack around it with a test
    for PL_parser->error_count == 0.)  Solaris doesn't segfault --
    not sure where the trouble is yet.  XXX */

This comment was originally introduced in commit bbed91b5 in 1999
