I attach a test case corresponding to the example below. It is a regression for a common construct when writing @classes so I would classify its severity as high.

Writing a minimal test case for bug #32296 will take longer but I think fixing it is lower priority than the one mentioned here.

(file #45505)

When I removed called_from_builtin, I looked for a bug report or message about it but didn't find anything.

We should add both of these test cases with bug numbers to the build system for future reference. I can do that but it may take a few days.

The called_from_builtin function was recently removed:


It has the consequence of reintroducing the bug described here:


and initially fixed there (where called_from_builtin was added):


For simplicity, I copy here a small example that illustrates the bug:

A positive consequence is that it fixes bug #32296, e.g. Mike's example from comment #7 now works.
