Confirmed. Crucial information missing: on Windows at least, this is only with
-O.

dmd -run bug.d
1.41421

dmd -run -O bug.d
-2.7341e-53

I'm raising this to regression.

Yes.  Also, this seems to happen only for sqrt(double) not sqrt(float) or
sqrt(real).

Not so.
float x = sqrt(2.0f);

is also wrong.
It only affects compile-time constants:
double y = 2.0;
double x = sqrt(y);
works correctly.
