NQP: Problem with arrays when unshifting/pushing

Reported by: bluescreen Owned by: pmichaud
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: nqp Version: 2.3.0
Severity: medium Keywords:
Cc: Language:
Patch status: Platform: linux


The following snippet is part of actions.pm of the language I'm trying to implement,

method TOP($/,$key) {
    our @?BLOCK;
    our $?BLOCK;
    my $past;

    if $key eq 'open' {
        $?BLOCK := PAST::Block.new( :blocktype('declaration'), :node( $/ ) );
        $?BLOCK.symbol_defaults( :scope('package') );
        say("before unshifting/shifting");
        say("after unshifting/shifting" );

it compiles ok but in runtime it get the following error

before unshifting/shifting
ResizablePMCArray: Can't shift from an empty array!

If preload @?BLOCK with bogus data it works for example:

@?BLOCK := (1,2);

In this case it doesn't fail. In #parrot plobsing mentioned that could be a problem with autoviv.
