digitalmars.D.bugs - [Issue 17694] New: traits compiles fails for property of property

https://issues.dlang.org/show_bug.cgi?id=17694

          Issue ID: 17694
           Summary: traits compiles fails for property of property
           Product: D
           Version: D2
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P1
         Component: dmd
          Assignee: nobody puremagic.com
          Reporter: andre s-e-a-p.de

While the first assertion works, the second assertion fails.
I expect it should work, as the statement "typeof(TButton.Margins.Left) l;"
works fine

class TButton
{
     property TBounds Margins() { return null; }
}

class TBounds
{
     property float Left() { return 0.0; }
}

void main()
{
  mixin(`static assert(__traits(compiles, TButton.Margins));`); // OK
  mixin(`static assert(__traits(compiles, TButton.Margins.Left));`); // FAILS
}
