Global function overloading does not work properly. The typechecker actually uses the return type of the "last" function that takes the given arguments. It should resolve calls to the most specific variant.

Example app:

entity Base {}
entity Extend : Base { prop :: String }

function f(e : Extend) : Extend { return null; }
function f(e : Base) : Base { return null; }

function g() {
  
  var x : Extend;
  f(x).prop := "x";
  
}

Note that changing the declaration order of the two functions is a workaround.
