In that case we have Law 46B4: "If declarer calls a card that is not in dummy the call is void and declarer may designate any legal card."

So no card has been played from dummy, and LHO may NOT change his play.

(May I add that I really appreciated Peter's very sound logic when answering the original question, I was myself initially in a bit of doubt)
