Default Quick way to crash Prime95

Not sure if this has been noted before, but I accidentally put some entries in worktodo.ini like this:
Note the erroneous "M". Doing that caused memory usage to fly through the roof and crash Prime95 within a second. Prime95 should have some validation checking when parsing worktodo.ini, since there's always people like me out there who do dumb things
