1815 Occurs check error from equality constraint guest chak "I was writing that manipulates witnesses for equality constraints,
and saw some occurs check errors for equations matching my constraints.

Bug.hs:19:31:
Occurs check: cannot construct the infinite type: n = Sum Z n

In a case alternative: Refl -> Refl
In the expression: case zerol n of Refl -> Refl

Here is the program producing that error:
