Reproduces the undefined behavior

This code compiles and produces Undefined Behavior:


import std.stdio;

struct T { int y; }

auto foo() {
    int *x;
    T t;
    t.y = 12345;
    x = &t.y;
    return x;

unittest {
    auto x = foo();
    writeln("Hello world");
    assert(*x == 12345);

It seems that the escape analysis checks if the pointed element is itself
directly declared on the stack, instead of checking whether it is contained in
something that is declared on the stack.
