Dynamic rule lifting changes non-context variables to DR_DUMMY() terms. However, this does not happen consistently. When a single-element list is used as left-hand side of a dynamic rule, the tail of the list will become []{DR_DUMMY}. So we got an empty-list tail with annotations, for which there is no syntax. Also, using a variable as left-hand side does not add the superfluous DR_DUMMY.

Test case:

main =
    rules(TestRule1 : [1] -> 2);

    x := [1];
    rules(TestRule2 : x -> 2);

Expected output:


Actual output:

I didn’t really dig into the compiler code, but I expect you could add an exception for empty lists or list tails to the dummify strategy you talked about. Then if the unit tests succeed, you should be safe ;)

Quick fix in r21764.
