Semicolon after if skips error checking.

Take the following code for example. "lol" is not an identifier and would normally error out on launch. However, if you put a semicolon right after the if statement, no error will show up and the game will launch. Tested on 4.6.0.
Code: Select allExpand view
class TestActor : Actor
   override void PostBeginPlay()
      if (lol);
         Console.Printf("Lorem ipsum.");

Looks like the empty 'if' gets deleted before its condition is checked...
