According to the report I have (which, sadly, is 3.99), an
implementation is not required to report an error under these
conditions, because the magic phrase ("an error is signalled") is not
mentioned in section 4.1.2. That section simply says "it is an
error", which means the implementation might report an error but is
not required to.

I agree that it would be nice if STk would report an error under these
circumstances, all other things being equal.
