if i remember well it had to do with an unitialized variable resulting in a negative node number or so; it dates from before the token list (reg number >255) bugs (which was fixed)

i must admit that i don't document such bugs here and that i never used lastnodetype after that, if only because i don't want to depend on users updating the binaries (a two year delay -worse when sysadm's are not willing to update- is a reasonable assumption)
