This snippet:

interface I { I makeI(); }
class D : I { D makeI() { return this; } }
class C : I { auto makeI() { return this; } }

does not compile. It fails in the third line with

Error: function C.makeI of type () overrides but is not covariant with I.makeI
of type I()

I think this should compile, especially because class D with explicit return
type compiles fine. It seems to me that covariance with the interface is
checked for before the return type is inferred.
