There is one more place where it would fall over in the same way, and
that is at doIMAGE.

(image <image_id>

<image_id> here would also be 0805, and the test relies on isSymbol to
determine a valid token. So again, the test should be the same as for
the component token.

if( !isSymbol( tok ) && tok != T_NUMBER )
