[Windows 10, using one of the v3.8.0 'experimental' builds that piggy-back on
v3.7.0]

Confirmed, when  m_flag(false).

I also tried the #for-loop example given in the docs (slightly modified)...

#declare R = seed(4711);
#for (I, 1, 10)
  #if (rand(R) < 1.1)
     #break // terminate loop early
  #else
   #debug concat(str(I,0,0), " iterations and counting\n")
  #end
#end

Same fatal error message.

It would seem that these additional uses of #break were never actually
implemented(?)...or maybe that there is some undocumented extra syntax missing.

Just guesses, of course.
