I haven't checked but it is probably undefined, rather than right-to-left in 
records.

Semicolons are used in many places in OCaml's grammar. Would you expect the 
members of a list literal to be evaluated left-to-right, for example?

# [print_endline "1"; print_endline "2"];;
2
1
- : unit list = [(); ()]
