Typing crash when pattern matching with polymorphic variants + exception cases #7083
Original bug ID: 7083
let f x =
crashes the typechecker.
The problem seems to have been introduced by #305. The crash occurs when calling Parmatch.pressure_variants to check for exhaustiveness. This function calls Parmatch.filter_all which calls Parmatch.normalize_pat which crashes upon seeing the exception case.

The problem raised by nojebar highlighted that we did not understand the implications of #305 as well as we thought. After some discussion with Thomas Refis and Luc Maranget, I decided to revert the change from trunk -- it is not ready for 4.03 and will have to wait for a later release.
So, many thanks for the diligent reporting!
