[Agda] another possible without-K problem

If I replace the definition of S1 with
module S where
private
data #S1 : Set where
#base : #S1
#f : #S1 → #S1
S1 : Set
S1 = #S1
base : S1
base = #base
open S
it still checks for me in darcs-checked-out agda. Is this what you mean by
hiding the fact that it's inductively defined?
