Is there a better place to post bugs, outside the list?

Well, regardless, here it is...

fpc 1.9.4 crashes with the following source. Of course, my bug was easy enough to find/fix, but it looks bad when the compiler crashes! Not a bug in 1.0.10.

Synopsis: index variable "ix" has not been declared. Try to access an array element via this index, and write said element to a file.

   array_of_longint : array [0..5] of longint;
   longint_file : file of longint;

   for ix := 0 to 5 do
      write (longint_file, array_of_longint[ix]);   // line 7
