digitalmars.D.bugs - [Issue 17759] New: struct that attempts to implicitly cast away


          Issue ID: 17759
           Summary: struct that attempts to implicitly cast away const
                    causes segfault
           Product: D
           Version: D2
          Hardware: x86_64
                OS: Mac OS X
            Status: NEW
          Keywords: ice, ice-on-valid-code
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P1
         Component: dmd
          Assignee: nobody puremagic.com
          Reporter: schveiguy yahoo.com

Consider the following struct which attempts to legally cast away const:

struct A
   int[] a;
   A foo() const { return A.init; }
   alias foo this;

The compiler segfaults, all the way back to 2.064. This is the minimum I could
do to make it happen. If you change anything, it seems to start compiling.

In LDC, it says "illegal instruction: 4"

If you use -v, I get this output:
