Dear guile,

The following program should just return 'foo, but it enters an
infinite loop:

(use-modules (oop goops))

(define-class <my-generic> (<generic>))

(define-method (no-method (generic <my-generic>) args)
  'foo)

(define-method (no-applicable-method (generic <my-generic>) args)
  'foo)

(define hello
  (make <my-generic>
    #:name 'hello))

(hello)

I don’t know GOOPS enough to understand what happens, but when I
slightly change the last line:

(use-modules (oop goops))

(define-class <my-generic> (<generic>))

(define-method (no-method (generic <my-generic>) args)
  'foo)

(define-method (no-applicable-method (generic <my-generic>) args)
  'foo)

(define hello
  (make <my-generic>
    #:name 'hello))

(apply-generic hello '())

Now it returns 'foo, as expected. So my guess is that the infinite
loops happens during the memoization phase. More specifically, the no-
applicable-method is called over and over again.

Please find a failing test case attached.

Best regards,

Vivien
