I thought this was a defect that was fixed a long time ago, where 
if the overriding function has no contract, it is implicitly 
given a "in (true)" contract, causing the contract of the 
overridden function to not be run. Am I mistaken as to what the 
defect was, or as to whether it was fixed, or both?
