TCC vanishes

I'm having a problem switching to local aliases and then modifying the alias
list.

TCC 11.00.37 Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]
TCC Build 37 Windows XP Build 2600 Service Pack 3

I normally have Option / Local Aliases unchecked and use global aliases.

I clicked Start / Run / <path>TCC.EXE then typed:


D:\>*option //localaliases=yes

D:\>*alias z=foo

As soon as I press Enter, the TCC application vanishes. This also happens
when it is a tab within TCMD.


My hope was that by using option localaliases I could do some alias testing
without harming my global list.

Reproducible here, build 38, x86 and x64 versions. Unfortunately, in neither case a .GPF file is produced. Debugging in Visual Studio gives:

Not supported (and never has been). You can only change that from the
OPTION dialog.

To switch between global and local aliases on the fly, use the ALIAS /L
command. Use ALIAS /G to switch back.

If it's not documented, it's not supported. LocalAliases is an undocumented
directive. (And there are two other documented ways to do the same thing.)
