Hi Reuben,

Can you investigate, e.g., instrumenting those rules to see what's
happening (then I don't have to ask for instructions on how to
reproduce :-), for example, by, inserting "| tee /tmp/1" or similar in
piplelines to see what intermediate results look like?

Another way to avoid warnings is to configure the rule so that it
knows where your functions are declared. Override _gl_TS_headers to do
