Index out of range when the observed function throws an error #5

Index out of range error thrown by eventsToCDS's array function call when the observed function pattern-matches on a value whose type is Generic-derived-Observable instance throws an error.

Minimum program to reproduce

#!/usr/bin/env stack
{-# LANGUAGE DeriveGeneric #-}
-- stack --resolver lts-8.4 runghc --package hood

import           Debug.Hood.Observe
import           GHC.Generics

data Hoge =
    { hoge1 :: Int
    , hoge2 :: String
    } deriving Generic

instance Observable Hoge

main :: IO ()
main = runO $ print $ f undefined

f :: Hoge -> Bool
f = observe "f" f'
f' :: Hoge -> Bool
f' h@(Hoge _h1 _h2) = error "ERROR"

And here's the output:

[Escaping Exception in Code : Prelude.undefined
CallStack (from HasCallStack):
  error, called at libraries\base\GHC\Err.hs:79:14 in base:GHC.Err
  undefined, called at hood-error-case.hs:19:25 in main:Main]

According to my debug code, the Index (12) out of range ((0,11)) error happens because one of the generated node ids is skipped (maybe by the exception) without getting counted as an event by sendEvent.

I'm going to investigate its more detailed cause and fix it.
Do you have any idea on the cause or the solution?

Thanks for finding this, and the test case. I think that we need to catch exceptions when we are ignoring them.

…rows an Exception

Fix ku-fpg#5 by incrementing the node id **only when the function is executed without exception**

Notes on Thread-Safety

This change would make hood less thread-safe because it doesn't lock `uniqSem` when reading anymore.
But IMO hood needs much more changes to be truly thread-safe
(for example, save the event stream and node id counter in thread-local variable)
So I think lowering the thread-safety by this change isn't be a big problem.
