This message is not a bug: the annotation is not correctly typed: 
v.c+(0..MAXLEN-1) represents a set of pointers to the elements of the
array v.c, i.e. a set of pointers to pointers to B.

Your first annotation asserts the validity of the pointers to A
structures, while your second one says that each cell of the c array in
the B structures is valid (which is pretty much the same as
\valid((v.c[0..MAXLEN-1])->c) with your typedefs). They are correctly
typechecked, but the jessie plug-in does not know how to handle them.

E tutto per oggi, a la prossima volta.
