digitalmars.D.bugs - [Issue 21443] New: scope (failure) with a return breaks safety


          Issue ID: 21443
           Summary: scope (failure) with a return breaks safety
           Product: D
           Version: D2
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: major
          Priority: P1
         Component: dmd
          Assignee: nobody puremagic.com
          Reporter: andrej.mitrovich gmail.com

ulong get ()  safe nothrow
    scope (failure) return 10;
    throw new Error("");

void main ()  safe
    assert(get() == 10);  // passes

It should not be allowed to do a `return` inside of a `scope (failure)`,
because currently scope failure also handles Errors. In this case any Error
thrown is not re-thrown, and the function simply returns a value.

That's a big hole in safety IMO.
