Description (last modified by igloo)
in an unusual case (exception thrown in code in the return) the thrown exception is returned from the function and then assigned to a variable with another type (e.g. string); if the variable is later evaluated, the exception is then actually thrown there (and not in the original function).
the bug is the problem in the asignement of a thrown exception to another type. the coding style is unfortunate and not encourage, but the compiler should report an error.
= do ... return (case x of 0 -> throw Anexception )
produces the error.
i attach a file to demonstrate the problem.
