           Summary: Bad typo correction: variable name "fool" -> "bool"
           Product: clang
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Keywords: quality-of-implementation
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P

The following code produces some terrible diagnostics:
int *test(UnknownType *fool) { return 0; }

<stdin>:1:11: error: use of undeclared identifier 'UnknownType'
int *test(UnknownType *fool) { return 0; }
<stdin>:1:24: error: use of undeclared identifier 'fool'; did you mean 'bool'?
int *test(UnknownType *fool) { return 0; }
<stdin>:1:29: error: expected ';' after top level declarator
int *test(UnknownType *fool) { return 0; }
3 errors generated.

Nick's comment on our internal bug:
Because it didn't know "UnknownType" it tried to autocorrect fool to bool. No
clang, no. And then what's with putting the ; after it, this is a function
