          Issue ID: 20634
           Summary:  safe forces bounds checking on newly allocated array
                    when using .ptr
           Product: D
           Version: D2
          Hardware: x86
                OS: Mac OS X
            Status: NEW
          Keywords: rejects-valid
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P1
         Component: dmd

```
void main ()  safe
{
    auto ptr = [ 42 ].ptr;
}
```

This errors out, even tho it is perfectly  safe.

```
foo.d(3): Error: [42].ptr cannot be used in  safe code, use &[42][0] instead
```
