I did some testing with this .WHILE thing and it appear to be the inverse problem that resulted in the current hack. The test was added in v2.11 and I  extended the test to preserve the (missing) label. This removed the error message but not the actual problem. The fix you provided appear to work for the current test but fails if you invert the statement.
Code: [Select]
.while (eax || edx) && ecx
.while !(eax || edx) && ecx

The same seems to apply to .IF/.ELSEIF/.UNTIL and so on. The jump-around label is lost and should at best be replaced with the exit label.

ML code:
Code: [Select]
.while !(eax || edx) && ecx
