This compiles and runs with no errors with dmd 2.044:


int fun(TElem)(TElem[] arr) { return 10; }
alias fun!(char) alternative; // LINE A
int alternative(int[] arr) { return 20; } // LINE B
void caller(TOp)(TOp op, char[] s) {
    assert(op(s) == 10);
}
void main() {
    caller(&alternative, cast(char[])"abc");
}



But if I swap the line A and B:


int fun(TElem)(TElem[] arr) { return 10; }
int alternative(int[] arr) { return 20; } // LINE B
alias fun!(char) alternative; // LINE A
void caller(TOp)(TOp op, char[] s) {
    assert(op(s) == 10);
}
void main() {
    caller(&alternative, cast(char[])"abc");
}


Then dmd 2.044 shows:
test.d(5): Error: cannot implicitly convert expression (s) of type char[] to
int[]
test.d(8): Error: template instance test.caller!(int function(int[] arr)) error
instantiating

Another case, maybe with a different cause:


struct Foo(alias f) {}
Foo!main baz;
void main() {}
