https://issues.dlang.org/show_bug.cgi?id=17658

          Issue ID: 17658
           Summary: Shared postblits and dtors conflict with non-shared
                    versions
           Product: D
           Version: D2
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: major
          Priority: P1
         Component: dmd
          Assignee: nobody puremagic.com
          Reporter: jack jackstouffer.com

Unlike the ctor, dtors and postblits cannot be overloaded with a shared version
that gets called on shared instantiations.

The main problem with this is that making any non-trivial struct work with
shared is now impossible, and the user has to make a new struct that's marked
with shared on the signature.

==================
struct A
{
    this(string a) {}
    this(string a) shared {}

    ~this() {}
    ~this() shared {}

    this(this) {}
    this(this) shared {}
}

void main()
{
    shared f = A("");
}
==================

Gives
