digitalmars.D.bugs - [Issue 17050] New: Inconsistent overload resolution depending on


          Issue ID: 17050
           Summary: Inconsistent overload resolution depending on member
                    values of Rvalue struct objects

Because no member nor struct type is different below, all calls are expected to
be resolved to the same foo overload. However, that's not the case:

struct S {
    const(int)[] c;

int foo(S s) {
    return 1;

int foo(immutable(S) s) {
    return 2;

void main() {

    // This call is resolved to foo(S):
    const(int)[] arr;
    assert(foo(const(S)(arr)) == 1);

    // These are unexpectedly resolved to foo(immutable(S)):
    assert(foo(const(S)()) == 1);        // FAILS
    assert(foo(const(S)(null)) == 1);    // FAILS
