digitalmars.D - Map and Spawn don't mix?

If I do:

  auto tasks =3D new Tid[numberOfTasks] ; =20
  foreach ( i ; 0 .. numberOfTasks ) { tasks[i] =3D spawn ( & partialSum , =
thisTid , i , sliceSize , delta ) ; }

everything workls as desired, I get parallelism and appropriate scaling.
However if I try:

  auto tasks =3D map ! ( ( i ) { return spawn ( & partialSum , thisTid , i =
, sliceSize , delta ) ; } ) ( iota ( numberOfTasks ) ) ;

the code runs but everything is serialized, no parallelism, no speed up.

I would say this is a bug, but perhaps it is a consequence of the way map w=
orks?

I doubt the code ever runs - map is lazy. Andrei
