digitalmars.D.bugs - Problem with mixins and overriding

int main()

}


Instead of printing out "[Mixer.foo] Result = mixer" it gets stuck in an  
infinite loop printing "[FooBar.foo] " and then ends up causing a stack  
overflow. It looks like mixer.foo() is actually calling FooBar.foo(). I  
would assume "mixin Mixer mixer;" would override Foo's foo() and FooBar's  
foo() would override mixer's.
