digitalmars.D.bugs - [Issue 20753] New: "Error: unknown" with structs of arrays,


          Issue ID: 20753
           Summary: "Error: unknown" with structs of arrays, speculative
                    instantiation and recursive types
           Product: D
           Version: D2
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Keywords: ice, rejects-valid
          Severity: regression
          Priority: P1

struct HashCollection()
    struct Item
        IniFragment value;
    Item[] items;

    ref lookupToReturnValue()
        return items[0].value;

    enum canDup = is(typeof(items.dup));

struct IniFragment
    HashCollection!() children;

Works in DMD 2.085 but not newer.

Bisecting shows that the error message begins manifesting when it was
introduced ( https://github.com/dlang/dmd/pull/9425 ), however debug versions
of DMD have been failing with an assertion failure before that change. The
assertion failures began after https://github.com/dlang/dmd/pull/5500 .
