If the actual for a formal type with unknown discriminants is class-wide, then
a call to a primitive operation of the formal that dispatches on result raises
program_error in the instance if the context cannot provide a tag for the call.
This is the case for a declaration of an object of the formal type. This rule
was not previously enforced by GNAT.

The following commands:

    gnatmake -q test_class

must yield:

   Tag of XX is P2.T1
   Raised on T1

with P1; use P1;
with P2; use P2;
with Text_IO; use Text_IO;
procedure Test_Class is
   Obj : T1;
       I.Test (Obj);
       when Program_Error => Put_Line ("Raised on T1");
with P1; use P1;
   type NT(<>) is new T with private;
    -- T has operation "function Empty return T;"
package G is
   procedure Test(XX : in out NT);
end G;
with Ada.Tags; use Ada.Tags;
with Text_IO; use Text_IO;
package body G is
   procedure Test(XX : in out NT) is
      XX := Empty;  -- Dispatching based on X'Tag takes
                    -- place if actual is class-wide.
      Put_Line ("Tag of XX is " & External_Tag (NT'class (XX)'Tag));
          YY : NT := Empty;
                   -- If actual is class-wide, this raises Program_Error
                   -- as there is no tag provided by context.
          XX := YY;  -- We never get this far.
   end Test;
end G;
package P1 is
   type T is tagged null record;
   function Empty return T;
end P1;
package body P1 is
   --  type T is tagged null record;
   function Empty return T is
      result : T;
      return Result;
end P1;
with G;
with P1; use P1;
package P2 is
   type T1 is new T with null record;
   function Empty return T1;
   package I is new G (T1'Class);
package body P2 is
   --  type T1 is new T with null record;
   function Empty return T1 is
      Result : T1;
      return Result;
