Description
This was discovered when trying to compile xml-conduit. Here is the standalone test case with a few comments indicating how to make it compile.
The program compiles with ghc-7.10.2 but fails with HEAD.

Thanks for the comments! If you just add the signature it really does compile? This is a bit strange, since the check runs post-typechecking so I would expect to have the same signature inferred at this point so I would not expect it to make a difference. I'll have to take a closer look, thanks :)

George, do you have any idea what is going on here?
I have been busy these days with #11195, #11303 and #11245 so I did not have enough time to look into it. Fortunately they are all done now so #11276 is my main priority now, I hope to have some feedback to give tomorrow.

Ha, finally! It took more than I expected but I found the source: I do not understand why but
GHC wraps all patterns in CoPat
s:
Just (EventBeginDocument |> <Event>_R) Just (EventEndDocument |> <Event>_R) ...
Hence, the following match of translatePat
(in deSugar/Check.hs
) is triggered:
CoPat wrapper p ty -> do ps <- translatePat p (xp,xe) <- mkPmId2FormsSM ty let g = mkGuard ps (HsWrap wrapper (unLoc xe)) return [xp,g]
This means that, e.g. for the first clause, instead of the *expected*:
Just EventBeginDocument
The following is generated:
Just (d2JK (EventBeginDocument <- d2JK))
And like this, we end up with a bunch of guards which make the checker explode.
The reason I
had it translated like this is that CoPat
s are used for data families, where we have the
original and a representation type constructor. Dropping the wrapper
would give a type
error (while it shouldn't) because the two constructors are different so the guard translation
allowed me to match against d2JK
using the source type (original tyCon) and then match the
guard (EventBeginDocument <- d2JK)
using the internal type (representation tyCon) and avoid
the mix-up.
It will need some tinkering but I think I can find a workaround.

George: short term, can we just degrade gracefully for now, and do something that doesn't blow up, at the expense of maybe reporting fewer warnings?
comment:13 Changed 15 months ago by
Hmmm, the problem appears only with data families right now I think. Dropping the wrapper in the general case does not help because we end up with non-satisfiable constraints. We could deactivate pm checking for matches that contain CoPat
s but this goes beyond data families (as the original test case without the signature has shown). I am still trying some ideas but I do not know exactly how much time will I need or if they are going to work after all. What is the time frame?

Does Phab:D1795 fix this?
Yes, it does. The current limits are:
test('T11276', compile_timeout_multiplier(0.01), compile, ['-fwarn-incomplete-patterns -fwarn-overlapping-patterns +RTS -M1G -RTS'])
and it passes.

Merged to ghc-8.0
as 6e23b68047a2c995562eba173fe9485cae18bff2.
Eek. This is another example of the new pattern-match checker falling into exponential behaviour.
Workaround:
-fno-warn-overlapping-patterns -fno-warn-incomplete-patterns
We probably won't solve this for the 8.0 release candidate but one way or another we must do so for the 8.0 release.
George: here is another for your list.
