digitalmars.D.bugs - Compiler asserts instead of giving an error message with non-static

Hi,

I have found that if you try and use static struct initialization syntax 
on a struct variable you have not declared static you receive an 
assertion failure in DMD and not a compiler error message as I would 
expect. Test case and sample run below.

Thanks!

-----------

struct Point
{
     int x;
     int y;
}

int main()
{
     Point point = { x : 1, y : 0 };	// Should be static

     return point.y;
}

Assertion failure: '0' on line 219 in file 'init.c'

Oops :) I didn't find that since I searched for "line 219", and of course the line number changes...
