Original bug ID: 4970
Reporter: turpin
Status: closed (set by @garrigue on 2010-02-04T09:10:27Z)
Resolution: fixed
Priority: normal
Severity: tweak
Version: 3.11.0
Fixed in version: 3.11.2+dev
Category: ~DO NOT USE (was: OCaml general)

Bug description

The following error seems surprising to me. The error message at least is perfectible. In fact, I even expected the x to be still visible as a field (thus making this example legal) but maybe this would bee too confusing.

class c = object
val mutable x = ()
method set = let x = () in x <- x

Error: Unbound instance variable x

Fixed the error message.
Indeed this was a bad example of reusing an error message for a different problem...
