const s = foo(); // compiles if type of s is specified explicitly

char[] foo() // seems to fail only if the return type is char[]
{        
    return null;
}

Compiles if the declaration of s goes after foo definition

This does work with dmd 2.013.

Right, but the bug is in the 1.x branch, which is still in use :)

The test case is a bit misleading. It requires an alias to the type which is
being inferred. With the original test case, it was provided by alias char[]
string; in std.object.

Here's a complete test case. Remove the alias, and it will be fine.
---
alias int * any_old_alias;
const bar = foo;
int * foo = null;
---

The alias creates a corrupt type (it doesn't have the 'deco' member set), and
this gets picked by 'bar' instead of the type of foo.

The behaviour is quite similar to 2672. Marking as critical, because subtle
changes in ordering in different modules can control whether the segfault
occurs.

Aargh, I'm wrong, it just has to be any forward reference. This really simple
test case segfaults in a completely different place (cast.c), with a much more
obviously corrupt type.

const bar = foo;
const int * foo = null;

I've moved the new test case to bug#3493 (segfault, cast.c). The original bug
now generates a forward reference error; the reduced test case (below) is now
an ICE instead of a segfault. This should be considered as the test-case for
this bug.

alias int * any_old_alias;

This applies to D2 as well. The D2 test case (below) generates:
 "Error: forward reference to type int*" on D1. 
On D2 it ICEs in mangle.c(81)  fd && fd->inferRetType
Removing the alias fixes both the ICE and the forward reference error.
Happens with typedef as well as alias.

-----
alias int * any_old_alias;
typeof(foo) bar = foo;
const int * foo = null;
