#9206 closed defect (wontfix)

expandProvide failing on intermediate object

Debugging a build with GavinDoughtie? today we found the problem isolated to expandProvides=true. Basically was not getting 'provided' because the object didnt' exist. This would all normally be handled by provide() of course, but it seems like expandProvides isn't robust enough to handle all of its cases. Personally it seems like somewhat of a premature optimization. Reporting here either to be fixed or document so as to not catch others by surprise.

(In [20398]) Refs #9206, expandProvide needs more work, but for now just adding extra documentation to the hazards of its use.

I don't think this bug is meaningful anymore after the AMD conversion. I can't even find an expandProvide option anymore.
