import t2

t.t2 = t2

(t2.nim is an empty file)

gives -

SIGSEGV: Illegal storage access. (Attempt to read from nil?)

Apart from this, I have a question -
Why is this get compiled and what does the t. do in here?

  C = object

var c = C()
t.c = c
echo t.c

echo t fails though with Error: type mismatch: got <void>

A module t has the symbol t that refers to itself, this can be used for disambiguation, like vs
