           Summary: Inconsistent constant->enum conversion rules
           Product: D
           Version: 0.174
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: DMD
        AssignedTo: bugzilla digitalmars.com
        ReportedBy: sean f4.ca


Compiling the code:

    enum A : uint
    {
        a = 0,
        b = 1
    }

    enum B : ulong
    {
        a = 0,
        b = 1
    }

    void main()
    {
        A a = 1;
        B b = 1;
    }

Gives:

    test.d(16): Error: cannot implicitly convert expression (1) of type int to
B

Changing the second constant to 1UL has the same result.  This is inconsistent.
 Either both assignments should work or neither should.

In dmd 1.031 and 2.015, both produce a compile error as expected.
