I don't understand what's going on here, but even if this is not a bug (and to
me it looks like a problem) it's too much tricky for D newbies.

This runs with dmd v2.046:


// case 1
struct Foo {
    const Foo f = Foo();
}
static assert(Foo.sizeof == 1);
void main() {}



While this is not OK:


// case 2
struct Foo {
    const Foo f;
}
static assert(Foo.sizeof == 1);
void main() {}


dmd v2.046 prints:
test.d(2): Error: struct test.Foo cannot have field f with same struct type
test.d(2): Error: struct test.Foo cannot have field f with same struct type

This is caused by Issue 3449. The problem is when an initializer is present 'f'
becomes a manifest constant.

Walter agreed it has to be fixed, but we have to wait for
https://github.com/D-Programming-Language/dmd/pull/93 to be merged.
