Flex sdk 3.5.0 problem with ternary operators

I’ve got problems to isolate the problem into a very big project with many linked sources. After hours inspecting and commenting lines of code trying to figure out the reason why flex gave me an “internal error” I found the problem.
This very simple script was crashing the flex compiler if using the 3.5.0 sdk ( revision ).
Fortunately the 4.0.0 compiler works fine. At the end it seems to be the combination of “+” and “-” and the ternary operator.

package { import flash.display.Sprite; public class ternary_test extends Sprite { public function ternary_test() { var n: Number = 0; var d: int = 3; var k: int = 5; var j: int = 10; n = 1 + ( -( d == 0 ? k : j ) ); trace( "n=" + n ); } } }

will cause the compiler to crash with the following stack trace:
