I can reproduce it with just the last two of those lines.

It doesn't crash 4.0.x/4.1.x, but it does get into a rather strange state,
trying to read a here-document whose start/end string is a single space,
which of course is impossible (so you're trapped in the here-document until
you interrupt somehow).

zagzig% mask = (1 << string.atoi(sys.argv[1])) - 1
zsh: parse error near `)'
zagzig% key = string.atoi(sys.argv[2])
