Summary0007682: [@@unboxed] for records with 1 polymorphic field
DescriptionThe following three lines lead to a compile-time crash

type f = {field: 'a. 'a list} [@@unboxed]
let g = Array.make 10 { field=[] }
let h = g.(5)

The error is
Fatal error: exception File "typing/", line 98, characters 6-12: Assertion failed
Steps To Reproduceocamlc

where bug is the attached file.
Additional InformationI was surprised by the nature of the error. Merlin didn't complain about typing, and the "exception File "typing/", line 98, characters 6-12: Assertion failed" is not where I would have expected a problem to arise.

If it is a known limitation of unboxing that doesn't marry well with polymorphism in the field type, I would have expected the error to tell me so, while an "Assertion failed" sounds more like a missed case.

It'd be amazing if it did work by just removing the assertion, though. But life is probably not that beautiful.

Reproducible in 4.05.0 (at least).

Also, it's surprising that the first two lines alone compile perfectly well

type f = {field: 'a. 'a list} [@@unboxed]
let g = Array.make 10 { field=[] }

It's really when I access an array cell that the compilation crashes.

I believe Ctype.get_unboxed_type_representation should traverse Tpoly. Working on a fix.
