The following code:

class A
{
    void size () ()
    {
        __traits(foo);
    }
}

void main ()
{
    auto a = new A;
    a.size;
}

Gives the following compile error:

Error: cannot resolve type for a.size()()
Error: dottd has no effect in expression (a.size()())

As far as I know "dottd" is an internal name in the compiler.

If I add a pair of parentheses to the call to "size" or if the method is not a
template method the correct error message appears:

Error: unrecognized trait foo
Error: long has no effect in expression (false)
Error: template instance main.A.size!() error instantiating
