Subject: Re: [Caml-list] Open class types
The behaviour of the compiler for your code is strange: I don't  see why 
the message error say the following:
    #session_t as 'a = < id : int; location : 'b. #location_t; .. >
where location is required to be a #location_t for all 'b (which I 
assume is the implicit self type variable of the open_type #location_t).
This seems to restrictive. Maybe a bug ?

Anymay, putting an explicit parameter in the session_t type solves the 
issue:

class type ['a] session_t =
 object
   method id:int
   method location: #location_t as 'a
 end

let check_session (session:'a #session_t) = begin
 print_int session#id;
 print_int session#location#a;
 print_string session#location#b
end
