I think there's a bug in ti_C.d in TypeInfo_C.equals() and compare(). The line return o1 == o2 || (o1 && o1.opCmp(o2) == 0); should be something like return o1 is o2 || (o1 && o1.opEquals(o2) != 0) || (o1 && o1.opCmp(o2) == 0); since o1 == o2 will seg-v if o1 is null. The same goes for compare() with the code // Regard null references as always being "less than" if (o1 != o2) It should be !==. Either that or the comment should be something like // Regard null references as seg-v Then again it always seemed wierd that x != null will seg-v if x is null. Maybe that is what needs attention rather than ti_C.d -Ben
