Same happens in language/exceptions/test_exceptions_01.e

we could consider to remove test_agent12.e without any loss.

test language/agent/test_agent12.e shows a non-initialized (= Void) procedure variable
         p: PROCEDURE[TUPLE]
on which (indirectly)
is called.

With assertions this yields an exception that can be caught by a rescue clause, fixed there and a retry passes.
In boost mode the code simply fails with a "Application crash at run time."

Next action: to be checked in ECMA whether there is a intended behavior defined. - Shall the Void-call be catchable with rescue?
