[erlang-bugs] Dialyzer hanging

I created a small code example, distilled from a couple files in a larger
project, that will cause dialyzer to hang indefinitely.
At least, in the larger project I left dialyzer running for 42 hours before
giving up.  I have only left it running for a few minutes on this small code
example before deciding that more time would not help.

I am running R14B03 on FreeBSD, amd64 architecture:
Erlang R14B03 (erts-5.8.4) [source] [64-bit] [smp:6:6] [rq:6]
[async-threads:0] [hipe] [kernel-poll:false]

Steps to reproduce:
erlc +debug_info test.erl
dialyzer --build_plt --output_plt test.plt test.beam



-record(property, {name, value}).
-opaque property() :: #property{}.

-record(collection, {id, values :: [#property{}]}).

as_proplist(#collection{values = Values}) ->
        [{Name, Value} || #property{name = Name, value = Value} <- Values] .

If I can provide any more details that will help, please let me know!
