digitalmars.D.bugs - [Issue 21547] New: Oder of constructor declaration affects struct

https://issues.dlang.org/show_bug.cgi?id=21547

          Issue ID: 21547
           Summary: Oder of constructor declaration affects struct
                    initializer
           Product: D
           Version: D2
          Hardware: x86_64
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P1
         Component: dmd
          Assignee: nobody puremagic.com
          Reporter: razvan.nitu1305 gmail.com

struct Bar 
{
     disable this(int a) {}
    this(int a, int b) {}                                                       

    string a;
    uint b;
}

void main ()
{
    Bar b = { a: "Hello", b: 42 };
}

Compiles fine. Whereas:

struct Bar 
{
    this(int a, int b) {}
     disable this(int a) {}                                                     

    string a;
    uint b;
}

void main ()
{
    Bar b = { a: "Hello", b: 42 };
}

Gives: test.d(12): Error: struct `Bar` has constructors, cannot use `{
initializers }`, use `Bar( initializers )` instead

Expected result: both examples give the same error.

The problem is that the compiler checks the first declared constructor and if
it is disabled it considers that the struct does not have any other
constructors. It should check the entire overload set.
