Livecode's "almost english" syntax trips me up ..

I'm not sure whether this is a bug, or merely amusing :-)

I've just spent a while (I won't admit to how many hours it was) 
debugging a simple error

I wrote

the second last line ...  seemed very intuitive to me. Unfortunately, LC 
interprets it as "the last line".
There's nothing in the docs to say it should be allowed - it was just me 
doing what seemed obvious.

I think it should produce an error message - if anyone agrees I'll 
submit it.

Oh - OSX, 4.5.0 just in case it matters.
