tcsh little bug

I found a bug (I think) in tcsh:
add this line to your .chsh:
set savehist = "1000 merge"
then spawn another tcsh
and exit it (via exit, or, if you feel crazy, via ^D)
produces (at least here):
exit: Badly formed number
you can stopp the mess by entering "exit" once again
This is triggered by some code that calls stderror() as it encounters
that the first word contains not only digits.
stderror() then notices that the shell is interactive and restart()s.
the loop begins...
oh yes, now I know that it should be
set savehist = (1000 merge)
