 commit e89f3bac94f513841f46346528183920783ce1f9

     In type or data instances, check that all variables are bound

     Trac #7536 points out that it's possible for the LHS to *look*
     as if it binds variables, but does not acutally do so

              type T a = Int
              type instance F (T a) = a

     This patch makes it an error.
