Re: [sc-dev] Re: Still occasional memory corruption...

Also interesting:

f = { |x,g|

f.(2,{ var abc = "this";

f.(2, { "abc is %".format(abc).postln; 3})})})})})})})})})})})})})})})

abc is 42

So then we know which frame the value is coming from.

Also, with Main.tailCallOptimize = false, I get random results.
