UnpackedPoly fails to translate into well-scoped Grin

Test Case: UnpackedPoly


For some reason, UnpackedPoly happens to tickle some bug in Grin.FromE right now and cause it to generate Grin that references variables that are not in scope. At the very least, FromE is making some undocumented assumptions about the form of the E -- if so, they should be documented and checked.

Well, it looks like the "instance ToVal? TVr" in Grin.FromE isn't really very safe --if the TVr refers to a global variable, the resulting Grin value won't make any sense.

The (_, EVar etvr) case in the code that handles ECase is where it's being called from in this case. I would provide more detail, but my computer just sponta-rebooted again.

Oh, that last comment was actually me. I had forgotten to log in.

I fixed this a while ago. Wonder why I didn't close it?
