Problem Description:

There seems to be an issue with empty statements and object literal notation (struct and probably array).  We had some code that had an if() statement with a semi-colon after the if brackets, and weird behavior started occurring. It took forever to track the issue down to the semi-colon;

Steps to Reproduce:

Actual Result:
Only one empty struct is output.

Expected Result:
Two empty structs should be output.

Any Workarounds:

Remove the "double" semi-colon after the first statement.

It's not limited to "double" semi-colons though.

if (foo == bar) {
// do something

causes the issue as well (note the semi-colon after the if brace).

I'm able to reproduce this on CF 9.01, but not on CF 10. Can you please try this on CF 10 and see if it works for you. (Comment added from ex-user id:sagarg)

This bug is not reproducible on CF 10 and hence closing it. (Comment added from ex-user id:sagarg)
