digitalmars.D.bugs - -cov and circular init deps

Was trying out the -cov options, and ran into this gem again:

     Error: circular initialization dependency with module Appender

without -cov, there's no problem. I'd like to give you a concise example to 
fix it with, but I'm sure you'll understand that's rather difficult with 
this particular problem? To reconstruct the error, build 
mango.example.logging.d

-cov adds a module initializer. What's likely happening is that Appender is importing module X, which is importing Appender. Hence, the circular dependency.

when there are no circular module dependencies. Are there any possible workarounds? This error only appears in the debug-build here. When compiled with -release -inline -O, the runtime binary segfaults. -- Jari-Matti
