          Issue ID: 19538
           Summary: "alias this" does not work with opEquals()
           Product: D
           Version: D2
          Hardware: x86_64

This program does not compile. I think it should do.

struct X {
    string m;
    alias m this;
    bool opEquals(const X s) const {
        return true;

void main() {
    X* x = new X("");
    assert(*x == "");
