From: Richard Jones <rich@a...>
Subject: Strange parsing of with-clauses
Not a big problem, but strange nevertheless:

# exception E of string * string;;
exception E of string * string
# let f () = raise (E ("a", "b"));;
val f : unit -> 'a = <fun>
# try f (); failwith "Not found" with E (a,b) -> (a,b);;
- : string * string = ("a", "b")
# try f (); failwith "Not found" with E t -> t;;
                                       ---
The constructor E expects 2 argument(s), but is here applied to 1 argument(s)

(In my actual code I want to return the thrown tuple to the caller).

Rich.
