Same effect:
ghc -fallow-overlapping-instances --make test5.lhs
[1 of 1] Compiling Main ( test5.lhs, test5.o )
test5.lhs:22:1:
Duplicate instance declarations:
instance [overlap ok] (Succ a b) => GT a b
-- Defined at test5.lhs:22:1
instance [overlap ok] (Succ a b, GT b c) => GT a c
-- Defined at test5.lhs:23:1
Does it work with another compiler version?
