Subject: [Caml-list] type constructor escape its scope
Hello List,

[[I'm a bit sick today so brain is badly working... probably a trivial
question I would be ashamed to ask on normal days.. sorry...]]

I compile a selfcontained camlp4 stuff.

You can get it from

It is the file in PoesiaSoft/PoesiaMonIcap/ revision
1.3 under CVS on

I've got when compiling with  
  ocamlc -pp "camlp4o pa_extend.cmo" -I +camlp4 -I . -c 
the strange message 

File "", line 60, characters 7-41:
This expression has type definition_t but is here used with type 'a
The type constructor definition_t would escape its scope

However, definition_t is a type defined in line 37 of the same file

any clues?
