digitalmars.D.bugs - warning bug - infinite loops

The code analyzer doesn't follow returns, issued within the loops:

warnloop.d:
 int main()
 {
   for (;;)
     return 0;
 }    

warning - warnloop.d(1): function warnloop.main no return at end of function The workaround at the moment is to insert an assertion:
 int main()
 {
   for (;;)
     return 0;
   assert(0);
 }    

When assertions are skipped over (later on), this becomes:
 int main()
 {
   for (;;)
     return 0;
   assert(0);
   return 0;
 }    

However, at the moment this gives another warning: warning - warnloop.d(6): statement is not reachable --anders
