Dear All

Running Dialyzer on the module below crashes Dialyzer with the error 
following:

** module

     -module(ltu).
     -export([get_map/0]).

     -spec get_map() -> map().
     get_map() ->
         #{labels => [one, two],
           number => 27,
           [1,2,3] => wer,        %% ok
           {4,5,6} => sdf,        %% ok
           kvok => #{
                 a => qwe,
                 2 => asd,
                 [1,2,3] => wer,  %% bad
                 {4,5,6} => sdf,  %% bad
                 "abc" => zxc
            }
          }.

** crash

     $ dialyzer ltu.erl

     Last messages in the log cache:

If I comment out the two lines marked "%% bad", Dialyzer can check the 
module.  nb the same key-value pairs that are bad in the nested map 
kvok, are ok in the top-level map.

Is this supposed to happen?  If so, why?

With thanks and best wishes

Ivan
