digitalmars.D.bugs - Wrong error message on forward reference bug

reply Lars Ivar Igesund <larsivar igesund.net> writes:
The code

void foo(dchar [] string = BAR) {}
const dchar [] BAR = "Bar";

won't compile with the message

constchar.d(1): cannot implicitly convert expression (BAR) of type 
dchar[] to dchar[]

Funny, heh?

Anyway, it compiles if you switch the lines, so I suppose it's a wrongly 
diagnosed forward reference problem. The same bug appears if foo and BAR 
are members of a class.
