      Description

      import java.util.Comparator;
      import java.util.List;

      class Test {
         <T extends Comparable<? super T>> Comparator<List<T>> comparator() { return null; }
         static <T extends Comparable<? super T>> void f() {
            Comparator<List<T>> comparator = comparator(); // [*]
         }
      }


      this program is rejected with the following error message:

       type parameters of <T>java.util.Comparator<java.util.List<T>> cannot be determined;
          no unique maximal instance exists for type variable T with upper bounds java.lang.Comparable<? super T>
