I've noticed that this code:

class Test {
    String e(E e) {
        return switch (e) {
            case A -> "42";

    enum E {
        A, B;

fails with:

Test.java:3: error: the switch expression does not cover all possible input 
        return switch (e) {
1 error

before this change but gets accepted with no error message after it
