[Xy-pic] Xypic infinite loop

Dear all,

Below is a minimal example of a tex file which seems to send xypic into an 
infinite loop, leading to a stack overflow.


\usepackage[arrow, matrix]{xy}

     **{!/l 10em/} a \ar[r] & b


The problem seems to go away if:

- you remove the \ar[r];
- you change the /l 10em/ to any other <vector> (cf. xyrefer, p.8);
- you add the option \CompileMatrices to the preamble.

I think this may be a bug in xypic. Does anyone have any
