Summary0000027: Type var in instance declaration can cause compiler to crash
DescriptionThe compiler crashes when compiling the following code:

:- module instance_var_bug.
:- interface.
:- typeclass tc(T) where [ pred p(T::in) is semidet ].
:- implementation.
:- instance tc(V) where [ p(_) :- semidet_true ].

The bug is that the instance argument is a variable, but this is not being caught.
TagsNo tags attached.

The compiler is checking that the instance declarations don't contain
type variables. The problem is that it doesn't do this check until
*after* the code that causing this abort is executed. Fixing this
should just be a matter of either re-ordering some of the checks in

Fixed. See r1.116 of compiler/check_typeclass.m for details.
