I don't see what code you added...

basically if you make a sentinel token optional a lexer has a problem 
switching back to another lexer.  It has to get a token to test it (to 
see if it's BBB), right?  If not BBB then it is incorrectly accessing 
the stream of chars associated with the other lexer.
