OK, I was just messing around (trying to understand select). From fresh master branch install, R --vanilla

select(mtcars, carb + disp)

 *** caught segfault ***
address 0x504378f78, cause 'memory not mapped'

 1: .Call("dplyr_select_impl", PACKAGE = "dplyr", df, vars)
 2: select_impl(.data, vars)
 3:, carb + disp)
 4: select(mtcars, carb + disp)

I know it shouldn't work, but I thought you'd want to catch it before a segfault. I got my lesson, I won't try it again.

I'm no longer getting a segfault, but rather this:

> select(mtcars, carb + disp)
Erreur : invalid column index : NA for variable: NA = NA

because of:

> select_vars( names(mtcars), carb + disp )

Not sure why select_vars does this. I'l let @hadley pick it up.
