D - might be not a bug, but...

The following piece of code compiles fine:

    alias ABC* LPABC;
    class ABC { }

On other hand, this one gives a "symbol used as a type" error:

    alias ABC* LPABC;
    struct ABC { }

Going further, this doesn't work:

    struct ABC
    {
     XYZ* x;
    }

    struct XYZ
    {
     ABC* a;
    }

The same thing made with classes work...

Don't you think it's a bit inconsistent and too discriminative
to stuctures? =)

It does look like a bug. I'll check into it.
