https://issues.dlang.org/show_bug.cgi?id=12709 Issue ID: 12709 Summary: unions and static-arrays not fully initialised Product: D Version: D2 Hardware: x86 URL: http://dpaste.dzfl.pl/fe1cf8759bb7 OS: Windows Status: NEW Severity: major Priority: P1 Component: DMD Assignee: nobody puremagic.com Reporter: anoneuron gmail.com Created attachment 1355 --> https://issues.dlang.org/attachment.cgi?id=1355&action=edit a copy of the test program, in case dpaste goes offline DMD 2.065 seems to be leaving static-arrays and (POD) unions only partially initialised in many cases. Here's a test program illustrating where the bug appears: http://dpaste.dzfl.pl/fe1cf8759bb7 This seems like a fairly substantial issue to me, as it violates an assumption one should be able to make about POD union literals: assert(UnionTypeA(b) is UnionTypeA(b)). Therefore, I've marked it as 'major', however I'm not very familiar with the severity scale for D bugs, so I apologise if that's not the appropriate label. I managed to find a pretty decent workaround using templates for the union-literal cases — I can share the details if anyone's interested. --
