No, the "working" in `minimal working example' (MWE) does not
mean that the example successfully runs without problems.
In contrary, the MWE should be complete and -- most important --
should show the problem. Of course, in this case it would
probably generate an error message.

Or shorter: A working TeX file would be a non-working MWE. ;-)
