> The bug appears to be already fixed in the development version of Isabelle, and hence in the forthcoming release (expected before the end of the year). There should be easy (but ugly) workarounds, e.g. by using a type isomorphic to Ã. Let me know if you want a patch for Isabelle2016.

another (much simpler) workaround is to put a âdeadâ annotation on âs (it is dead anyway since it occurs as a parameter to set):

datatype (dead 's, 'p) test' =
   Test' "(('s, 'p) test' à 's set à 's set) listâ
