#1474 Ensure 'super' only used with slot call

is valid Fantom. Basically, super is this used with another type (try [super].typeof).

The real problem is that in JavaScript super is compiled as empty string, which often leads to valid but strangely behaving code.

Yeah no need to make that a legal expression. We should restrict super calls to the target of a method call.

Renamed from super expression to Ensure super only used with slot call

Ticket resolved in 1.0.59

Decided the simplest fix for this was to trap it in the parser since super must always be followed by dot operator.
