Maybe I should have been a bit more precise; the suspension is caused during the evaluation of the equality constraint
 ignore False =:= ignore x
where x is the free variable introduced in the ignore function. Here the evaluation of the sub-constraint False =:= x is suspended until x is instantiated to a non-variable term, which of course never happens in your example.
