GHC 7.6.1-rc1 (7.6.0.20120810) rejects this code with the following error message.
Test2.hs:24:52:
Couldn't match expected type `Y'
with actual type `TF (forall b. (C A b, TF b ~ Y) => b)'
In the first argument of `f ::
(forall b. (C A b, TF b ~ Y) => b) -> X', namely
`u'
In the expression: (f :: (forall b. (C A b, TF b ~ Y) => b) -> X) u
In an equation for `v':
v = (f :: (forall b. (C A b, TF b ~ Y) => b) -> X) u
GHC 7.4.1 rejected this code with a different error message:
