[isabelle-dev] Safe approach to hypothesis substitution

I'm pretty sure this one is a bug. Try typing this into your favourite 
Isabelle session:

lemma foo:
   "fwrap f = (%v. f v) ==> P f"
   apply clarify

And note the system hangs. I think this is a pretty good argument to 
support the case that it doesn't occur in any existing Isabelle scripts.

Just to be safe, though, I can test this change in isolation against all 
the HOL libraries and the AFP thisevening when my machine has spare CPU 
time. I guess I should test against Isabelle 2009-2 rather than a 
development snapshot since the AFP will be known to build?
