digitalmars.D.learn - dmd2 assertion failure when comparing pointers

reply Matthias Pleh <sufu alter.com> writes:
Maybe a little stupid, but I get an assert when I try to compare a valid 
pointer with an int casted pointer.
I know, I could compare the pointer itself, but shouldn't is-poerator 
also work?
Also, shouldn't an assert always reproted as a bug?


struct Test {}

void main()
{
     Test t,t2;
     bool a = &t is &t2;		// -> works!
     bool b = cast(Test*)1 is &t;
     // -> Assertion failure: '0' on line 875 in file 'constfold.c'
}
