Summary 0004236: Matrix + Vector3 gives infinite recursion, rather than error
Description Just an unfortunate trap for the unwary...

      Matrix4x4 identity + (1@1@1)
gives an infinite recursion.

The + is handled by FloatArray as

        ^ self clone += anObject

which invokes Matrix4x4 +=;
that tries a primitive, which fails,
and then falls back to

        ^super + anObject.

which is a recursive call to FloatArray +,
which clones again and calls += again.

Of course it's a bug to call matrix+vector in the first place,
but the punishment seems a little disproportionate :-).
