This looks like an error in the Verifier. I often find them a bit
terse too, but I don't think there's a command-line option to
automatically be more verbose on an error. I tend to set a breakpoint
in "CheckFailed" and go up a few stack levels. That usually lets you
dump the function or module that's causing problems.

Alternatively, you might dump your functions just after creating them
and look for truncs & loads with those operands.
