I'm trying to use the package supertabularin order to be able to break long tables in twocolumn mode (cf. the answer to this question). But I always end up with the following error when compiling:

 Misplaced \noalign.
\@tabletail ->\noalign 
                       {\global \let \@savcr =\\ \global \let \\=\org@tabula...
l.9 \end{supertabular}

I assume I'm making some very basic mistake here, but I can't figure out what it is. Here's a MWE:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{supertabular}
\begin{document}
\begin{supertabular}{l l}
First column & Second column\\
First column & Second column\\
First column & Second column
\end{supertabular}
\end{document}

You must end the last line with an \\ too. –  Ulrike Fischer Feb 13 '13 at 14:11

supertabular requires all rows to end in \\ (with normal tabular the last ones doesn't need it, although you could supply it there too). So add \\to the last row.
