c++ - bug in dmc 8.42n

DMC allows code to get a pointer to an overloaded function without enough
context to tell which function should be used. It appears to just pick the first
one that was encountered. (This bug also exists in DMD 0.141)

#include <stdio.h>

// switch these and output line 3 changes
char  fn(char c) { return c; }
int   fn(int i)  { return i; }

int main(int argc, char *argv[])
char(*fnc)(char) = &fn;
int(*fni)(int)   = &fn;

printf("fn(char)\t%p\n", fnc);
printf("fn(int) \t%p\n", fni);
printf("fn(?)   \t%p\n", &fn);

return 0;
