digitalmars.D.bugs - stray override attribute

Quote from "dmd/html/d/attribute.html"
 The override attribute applies to virtual functions.
 It means that the function must override a function
 with the same name and parameters in a base class.

<< << sniplet 1 >> >> class Parent{ int check; } class Child : Parent{ override int check; } << << sniplet 2 >> >> struct MyStruct{ override int check; } << << sniplet 3 >> >> struct MyStruct{ override int check(){ return 0; } } << << sniplet 4 >> >> override int check; << << sniplet 5 >> >> override int check(){ return 0; } dmd 0.98 compiles the sources without any errors.
