Running master at commit f9e8bce or I believe with the change above. The 
attached file (Someone's signature scene) from my parser testing 
collection gives:

==== [Parsing...] ==========================================================
File 'Sig00.pov' line 2: Parse Warning: Float value promoted to full 
color vector where both filter and transmit >0.0.
File 'Sig00.pov' line 1: Parse Error: End of file reached but #end expected.
Fatal error in parser: Cannot parse input.
Render failed

It renders fine in other versions OK.

Unfortunately a change in my own tcl code base caused problems running 
the complete set of test cases... Off to fix that and try the complete 
set again.
