Follow up on #39664

Did a git pull, but still find a way to let it panic by accident, I was trying to correct Robert version so it would compile but failed to do so.

package main

type T(type _) struct {}

func (e T(int)) m()

func _() {
	var x interface { m() }
	x = T(int){}
	_ = x
go tool go2go run hello.go2
panic: runtime error: invalid memory address or nil pointer dereference

Thanks. The type-checker is happy with this, but the translator is not. Possibly it has trouble with the receiver of m declaring an int type parameter.

Edited: The problem is the missing method body.

This looks like the same bug as #39634 (comment) which is caused by the method not having a body (the top frame in the stack trace is instantiateBlockStmt).

@griesemer griesemer commented Jun 18, 2020

Indeed. It has nothing to do with the receiver, it's that the method doesn't have a body. Will be fixed in the translator.
