The compiler is behaving correctly.

http://www.digitalmars.com/d/2.0/declaration.html#Typeof

Typeof:
        typeof ( Expression )
        typeof ( return )

"int" is not parseable as an expression, therefore "typeof(int)" correctly
fails to compile.

"inttype" is, OTOH, parseable as an expression, just not semantically valid as
one.  Therefore the IsExpression correctly evaluates to false.
