[erlang-questions] Why does Dialyzer crash on this map?

I've finally manage to pop my stack to this issue.

I can confirm that your example does trigger an dialyzer error on 17.5 
.. though that is not the case on current master. I believe other fixes 
in format has remedied this problem on master.

If you have the possibility, recheck your codebase with dialyzer using 
current master or 18.0-rc1 and see if any other problems persist.
