Subject: [Caml-list] ocamldep bug (probably)

I have a file called which does:

open GMain    (* from lablgtk2 *)


window#connect#destroy ~callback:Main.quit;

When ocamldep is run on this file, it generates a dependency which
looks like:

main.cmo: ... main.cmo ...

This is incorrect.

In this case the fix is reasonably simple, ie.  just remove the 'open
GMain' line and replace the callback with an explicit
'GMain.Main.quit'. However in the general case this could cause all
sorts of unexplained errors.
