Now in UD, with a surprising-reasonable set of definitions, from 2005.

Otherwise, as far as the Web is concerned, _break nasty_ occurs only
in the environment immediately before "... habits."

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"––a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
