I think the test still using the withdrawn InlineObject is a red herring. The golden files account for this already and
capture suitable errors for those uses of the non-existent interface.

The real trouble is due to an error NOT being emitted in line 33 of the TopInterfaceNegativeTest.java:


static inline class V2 implements InlineObject {}

void foo(V2 v) {
        if (v instanceof IdentityObject)  // line 33
            throw new AssertionError("Expected inline object but found identity object");

v instanceof IdentityObject is patently false and can be ascertained at compile time to be patently false thereby
resulting an error message:

TopInterfaceNegativeTest.java:33:13: compiler.err.prob.found.req: (compiler.misc.inconvertible.types:
TopInterfaceNegativeTest.V2, java.lang.IdentityObject)

Given 'v' is type V2 and that is a final class, we known all the interfaces implemented by v and so can evaluate at
compile time whether the instanceof is patently bogus -

Now with the change for sealing of projections, this error is not emitted anymore and that is the reason for the

The error is valid and should be restored.
