Ticket #5007 (closed bug: invalid)
"deriving" seems to ignore class context for a type family

class Foo a where data Bar a :: * class (Show (Bar a)) => Qux a data (Qux a) => Xyzzy a = Xyzzy (Bar a) deriving Show
Here I get the following error:
No instance for (Show (Bar a)) arising from the 'deriving' clause of a data type declaration Possible fix: add an instance declaration for (Show (Bar a)) or use a standalone 'deriving instance' declaration, so you can specify the instance context yourself When deriving the instance for (Show (Xyzzy a))
Curiously, I get the same error even if I add ", Show (Bar a)" to the context of "Xyzzy".
