An implicit with an inferred return type is (sometimes) visible before it's point of definition, despite the comments on #801.

Example in the wild is in specs2

  • a clean compile succeeds
  • an incremental compile that touches only that file fails
[error] specs2/matcher/src/main/scala/org/specs2/matcher/MatchResultMessages.scala:13: could not find implicit value for parameter mm: scalaz.Monoid[Product with Serializable with MatchResultMessages.this.MatchResultMessage]
[error]     Reducer.unitReducer { r: MatchResult[T] => r match {
[error]                         ^
[error] one error found
[error] (matcher/compile:compileIncremental) Compilation failed
