digitalmars.D.bugs - [ ] isn't parsed correctly from a template char[] argument

Possibly the same cause as the previous bug, because
it also goes away if you introduce parentheses.

Error:
  fish is used as a type

---------------
template whale(char walrus)
{
    const char whale = walrus;
}

template dolphin(char [] fish)
{
//const char dolphin = whale!((fish[4])); // OK
   const char dolphin = whale!(fish[4]); // fails
}

const char urchin = dolphin!("anenome");

I've run into this one too, although I didn't think to use an extra set of parens. Would be nice to see this fixed.
