# type _ t = ..;;
type _ t = ..

# module M : sig
    type 'a t += Foo : 'b -> 'b t
    val x : string t
  end = struct
    type 'a t += Foo : 'b -> 'c t
    let x = Foo 0
module M : sig type 'a t += Foo : 'b -> 'b t val x : string t end

# let M.Foo s = M.x;;
Characters 4-11:
  let M.Foo s = M.x;;
Warning 8: this pattern-matching is not exhaustive.
Here is an example of a case that is not matched:
Matching over values of extensible variant types (the *extension* above)
must include a wild card pattern in order to be exhaustive.

Process OCaml segmentation fault (core dumped)

The inclusion check for extension constructors with GADT syntax was comparing the types of the arguments in combination with the types of the type parameters rather than the return types. The fix is simple and follows how the same issue is handled in ordinary constructors.
