#151 closed bug (Fixed)

Unboxed tuples as values

Description

Consider

  type T a = Int -> (# Int, Int #)

  f :: T a -> T a
  f t = \x -> case t x of r -> r

gives the following error message:

  ghc-5.04.1: panic! (the `impossible' happened, GHC 
version 5.04.1):
	  codeGen/CgRetConv.lhs:83: Non-exhaustive 
patterns in function
	  dataReturnConvPrim

Trouble is that 'r' is bound to an unboxed tuple.  This 
should fail, but in 5.04.1 it crashes the compiler.  In 6.0 
it's worse: the code will core dump because it enters R1.

But it should be rejected in the type checker.

Fixed, at last. Test is tcfail115.hs

The error message is still poor, but at least it now fails 
typechecking
