Hi Dave,

Thanks Dave, indeed. Was certainly to late for me yesterday.
I forget the class, in which the lookup is supposed to be started.

Eliot, well, there was another argument, which was probably interpreted as the lookup class but was just a SmallInteger instead. Guess that was causing the crash.

From the RoarVM interpreter I understand that the lookup class is not crosschecked for being a class. I think it did work on the interpreter for me, because my patched DNU handler is 'a bit to robust', and does not exactly what it is supposed to do.
