There was a bug in the spec. Fixed.

However, it shouldn't cause an endless loop. It should have just resulted 
in the parser hanging waiting for more tokens after receiving the end-fo- 
file token.

The test is (now) wrong. However, a bunch of more tests should be added to 
cover cases of this nature (i.e. all the things I just checked in should 
have tests written for them to make sure they are all giving the right 
behaviour and number of errors).
