It seem to be a bug. On the one hand the program can be simplified to:
   class A {
     B @ b;
     <<< "B:", b.toString() >>>;

   class B {}
with the error still there. But the following compiles:
   class A {
     B @ b;
     <<< "B:", b.k >>>;

   class B {
     int k;

So chuck seems supposed to be able to handle forward references, but  
not working for toString().
