This was fixed about a month ago.  However,

    main(!IO) :-
        P = (pred(!.IO::di, !:IO::uo) is det :-
            io.write_string($pred, !IO),

will print

    predicate `pre.main'/2

which, while correct by one view, seems counter-intuitive.
Any suggestions on how to expand $pred in lambdas?
