Bug description

The following code:

type foo = Foo

type bar = { x : foo; y : int }

let b = { x = Fod; y = 5 }

generates the error message:

Characters 14-17:
let b = { x = Fod; y = 5 };;
^^^
Error: This record expression is expected to have type bar
The constructor Fod does not belong to type foo
Hint: Did you mean Foo?

but it should instead be:

Characters 14-17:
let b = { x = Fod; y = 5 };;
^^^
Error: This expression is expected to have type foo
The constructor Fod does not belong to type foo
Hint: Did you mean Foo?
