Dotted references to type parameters do not have the correct size
See the commented out portions of t_type_param.v. Perhaps this shouldn't even be allowed since it can cause elaboration-time loops. However, we currently do not get any errors or warnings at compile-time.
See Issue #1456 for background.

For the second commented section, it refers to baz is a parameter set to a $bits. $bits is by IEEE a 32-bit return value, therefore $bits(baz) should be 32, which is what Verilator says (that is you're saying m != $bits($bits(bar)). I suspect you didn't want the $bits(foo_inst.baz) and instead wanted
if (m != foo_inst.baz) begin
Similar for first section. When I remove the extra $bits, and fix the instance pointed to, both pass. Or I'm misunderstanding the problem.

Ugh, yup. I think I started with $bits(foo_inst.bar) before I added baz. In any case, this fixes the commented portions of the test: https://github.com/toddstrader/verilator-dev/tree/samehash-test
Or if you think that is redundant with the checking via bar_size, we can just rip out the comments. Whatever you think is best here.

Sigh, this issue isn't working out well for me. So #1456 isn't totally fixed then. I'm getting AstBasicDTypes in paramValueNumber() for this, but the left() and right() are always evaluating to zero even though I see that they should not be zero. I'll have to investigate some more.

OK, so I actually ran all the tests this time: https://github.com/toddstrader/verilator-dev/tree/samehash-test
The problem was that by the time we got to paramValueNumber() with the type parameter, the type's range had not yet been constified. So when I tried to get left() and right(), I always ended up with "[0:0]". This meant all the keys were the same for any width range of the same type which caused the collision error.
I wasn't sure if there would be any issue with additional levels of param indirection so I added a wrapper module to the test to force some additional elaboration steps.
