global() bug

                    GP/PARI CALCULATOR Version 2.0.17 (beta)
                i686 running linux (ix86 kernel) 32-bit version

parisize = 4000000, primelimit = 500000
gp> global(a)
gp> global
%1 = [a]
gp> global("b")
  ***   expected character: ',' instead of: global("b")

gp> global
%2 = [a, ]

Seems like a bug to me. The error in the third call to "global" is noted,
but then something else seems to be added to the global list anyway. Shalom,
