Okay, yes.  The capture bound should already have the substitution applied in 18.5.2:

G<β1, ..., βn> = capture(G<A1 θ, ..., An θ>)

I'll fix that.

I also noticed that, since we've established that the invocation is a poly expression, the return type must contain an inference variable (after substitution) -- per 15.12 in Part D.  So it can't be void.  I've eliminated that case.
