Try compile the snippet above and you'll get a C-compiler error (here it's clang).

rock_tmp/./main.c:46:17: error: too few arguments to function call, expected 1,
      have 0
    ~~~~~~~~~~~ ^
1 error generated.
C compiler failed (with code 1), aborting compilation process

If you put classes + main func into the same file it compiles like a charm.

TL;DR: Depending on location of classes rock picks the wrong super method

EDIT: changing the order of the init functions fixes the issue => suffix is probably not taken into account. Location issue keeps being the major wtf, though.

EDIT: Issue does not depend on the function being "init", fails for arbitary functions as well, => "super func" issue

Well is this actually supposed to be valid? The suffix is part of the function's signature, so to overload init~noArg in class B you should do init: super func ~noArg imo. This is still a bug though as rock does not understand that there is no such function to overload.
