# [tex-live] bug: misleading message "TeX capacity exceeded" in beamer

The following error message occurs:

TeX capacity exceeded in beamer, sorry [hash size=5000]

in beamer, when a \block statement lacks the name of the block,
and that the block contains a list of items:

\begin{block}
\begin{itemize}
\item ...
\end{itemize}
\end{block}

LaTeX didn't figure out that the name of the block was not there and print
this error message without giving any hint of what has really happened.
