    When a source member contains a valid statement containing the
    VARYING(2) keyword, and the line is shifted one or two spaces
    to the right in the editor, the syntax checker in RDI may abend.
    
    For example, if the following line is in an RPGLE source member,
    and all the text following the initial D is shifted right by
    one or two spaces, for example using ALT-F8, RDI may crash.
