Description
Here's my code (fun.hs):
{-# OPTIONS_GHC -fglasgow-exts -fallow-undecidable-instances #-} import Control.Monad.Reader instance Eq (a -> b) where _ == _ = error "whoops" instance Show (a -> b) where show = const "<fun>" instance (Num a, Monad m, Eq (m a), Show (m a)) => Num (m a) where fromInteger = return . fromInteger abs = liftM abs signum = liftM signum (+) = liftM2 (+) (*) = liftM2 (*) (-) = liftM2 (-) instance (Fractional a, Monad m, Num (m a)) => Fractional (m a) where fromRational = return . fromRational (/) = liftM2 (/) instance (Floating a, Monad m, Fractional (m a)) => Floating (m a) where pi = return pi exp = liftM exp log = liftM log sin = liftM sin cos = liftM cos tan = liftM tan sinh = liftM sinh cosh = liftM cosh tanh = liftM tanh asin = liftM sin acos = liftM cos atan = liftM tan asinh = liftM sinh acosh = liftM cosh atanh = liftM tanh

Expected result:

This used to work in ghci-6.4. What's also weird is that manually lifting one number seems to help:
*Main> (1 + 2) undefined <interactive>:1:1: No instance for (Num (a -> t)) arising from the literal `1' at <interactive>:1:1 Possible fix: add an instance declaration for (Num (a -> t)) In the first argument of `(+)', namely `1' In the expression: (1 + 2) undefined In the definition of `it': it = (1 + 2) undefined *Main> (1 + const 2) undefined 3

This bug is the same as #179.
I've finally fixed it. The patch should work fine on the 6.6 branch.
