digitalmars.D.bugs - 126 - Nested class privacy issues

Outer classes can't access inner classes' private members.

class A
{
 this()
 {
  b=new B;
 }

 class B
 {
  private int mX;
 }
 B b;

 void something()
 {
  int x=b.mX; // illegal
  C c=new C;
  int y=c.mY; // legal
 }
}

class C
{
 private int mY;
}

You'll notice that I can't access b's mX, but I can access C's mY.

I thought that if classes were in the same module (and _especially_ in the 
same class!) that private members were accessible in that module.
