The error message returned from imcc when trying to 'new' a non-existent
PMC is misleading.

$ cat foo.pasm
new P0, .Bigint
$ parrot foo.pasm
error:imcc:syntax error, unexpected DOT
in file 'foo.pasm' line 1

<chip> shirley it's just another production:   '.' error { error("that
was supposed to be a type name there") }    or some such Perl Programming lists via nntp and http.
