I think you simplified the function too much, so it doesn't trigger the bug in the compiler anymore. I can reproduce the bug with a somewhat simpler code:



err(_, <<Length, Data/binary>>) ->
    case {Length, Data} of
        {0, _} -> Data;
        {4, <<Rest/binary>>} -> Rest

Calling a:err(1, <<0>>) returns <<0>>. That's on 21.0.2
