The current error message for the "halt" error is:

Moriturus te saluto

This is incorrect since "saluto" is first person,
not third person as the famous phrase calls for.

The correct phrase is:

Moriturus te salutat

See http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/salutare for the relevant conjugation

Sorry for the pedantry. ;)
