What steps will reproduce the problem?

    fset := token.NewFileSet()
    src := `
package p

func f() int {
    return 1

func g() {
    defer f()
    go f()
    f, err := parser.ParseFile(fset, "", src, 0)
    if err != nil {

    var conf Config
    types := make(map[ast.Expr]Type)
    _, err = conf.Check(f.Name.Name, fset, []*ast.File{f}, &Info{Types: types})
    if err != nil {

    for x, typ := range types {
        if exp, ok := x.(*ast.CallExpr); ok {
            fmt.Printf("%+v, %v\n", exp, typ)

What is the expected output?
Two lines of output, one for the call expression corresponding to `defer f()` and one
for `go f()`.

What do you see instead?
No output.

Which version are you using?  (run 'go version')
go version devel +2e735aa41d4a Tue Sep 17 13:30:36 2013 -0400 darwin/amd64

I'm trying to use this functionality for my program errcheck
( to check if someone ignored an error return by calling `go
f()` or `defer f()` where f() is a function that returns an error type.
