#983: Deep typing bug
 Reporter:  seth     |      Owner:
     Type:  Problem  |     Status:  new
 Priority:  High     |  Milestone:  Bro2.2
Component:  Bro      |    Version:  git/master

 This looks like an issue where the automatic typing is digging down one
 layer (beyond the set to the first record) but then doesn't auto type the
 record a layer deeper and gives an error.  This is kind of a major
 usability issue for the 2.2 release because of how the vulnerable software
 version script works.

 Example script:
 @load frameworks/software/vulnerable
 redef Software::vulnerable_versions += {
         ["Java"] = set([$max=[$major=1,$minor=5,$minor2=999]],

 Gives the output:
 error in ./test-vuln.bro, line 3: type error in initialization
 ([$max=[$major=1, $minor=5, $minor2=999]], [$min=[$major=1, $minor=6],
 $max=[$major=1, $minor=6, $minor2=0, $minor3=43]], [$min=[$major=1,
 $minor=7], $max=[$major=1, $minor=7, $minor2=0, $minor3=20]])
