digitalmars.D.bugs - [Issue 14720] New: Template function reported non-template


          Issue ID: 14720
           Summary: Template function reported non-template
           Product: D
           Version: D2
          Hardware: x86_64
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P1
         Component: dmd

I'm not sure if this is a bug or just really confusing error messages:

This piece of code:

import std.traits;
template ReturnTypeEx(alias A, B) {
    alias ReturnTypeEx = ReturnType!(A!B);
template a(R) {
    void a(S)(auto ref S i) { }
template b(alias R) {
    void b(S)(S i) {
        alias Ra = ReturnTypeEx!(R, S);
void main() {
    alias bb = b!(a!ulong);
    alias bbb =  ReturnTypeEx!(bb, int);

Generate error saying the nested template function a.a is not a template
