      Description

      1. I wanted to define this very simple no-args closure, foo, using groovysh:

      def foo = { ->
              println "test"
      }
      

      2. But the moment I hit ENTER in the shell after typing out the first line,
      I get the following error:

      $ groovysh
      Groovy Shell (2.1.5, JVM: 1.6.0_43)
      Type 'help' or '\h' for help.
