rust --ls is now ICEing on every rust library I have tried it on. This is with rust from June 30 on Mac. For example doing an --ls on the library from results in:

gnos: rustc --ls bin/libsocket-9e5595de7eda745e-0.1.dylib

Setting RUST_LOG didn't produce any additional output.


Just to be clear, your installed rustc was built from git HEAD as of June 30? That surprises me, because this looks like #2192 , which I fixed six days ago.

Ok, I'll try to reproduce.


Reproduced with 328fd30 -- I'll look into it.


This appears to be because the list-metadata code is trying to print out info about intrinsic::visit_ty, but the right information about it doesn't get serialized. Further research tomorrow.

@catamorphism catamorphism added a commit that closed this issue Jul 9, 2012
@catamorphism catamorphism Tag re-exports differently in metadata
so that the "list metadata" command doesn't print out anything
about intrinsics, but other code can see them.

Closes #2771
