The Problem

Both of these fail:

use Test;
my @foo =""),"");
throws-like { @foo[0] }, Exception, "Does throw";
lives-ok { @foo[1] }, "Does throw";

Expected Behavior

One of these to fail and the other succeed. I'm not entirely sure which behavior is desirable, but I'm pretty sure consistency is.

Actual Behavior

Both fail.


This is Rakudo version 2019.03 built on MoarVM version 2019.03
implementing Perl 6.d.

BTW, lives-ok behaves this way because it calls it's argument from within a try block, and the try block enables «use fatal».
