I checked in a fix for that.  Please try a variety of operations on "mem"
and verify that none of them crash or anything.  Obviously the writing code
has never been tested.

Lose.  You lose.  "Loose" is the opposite of "tight", and only used as a
verb if you mean to say "loose the hounds" or "loose your bowels" or
something.  I've given up on correct native English speakers who can't
spell two of the words we all learned how to distinguish before the age of 6,
but with you foreigners it might be an honest mistake that you could correct.
