void main()
    alias Type = int[string];

    // cannot use '==' with types
    static assert(is(int[string]) == Type);

    // Error: found '[' when expecting '.' following int
    static assert(is(int[string]) == int[string]);

The first error message is informative, but the second one is a syntax error.
The compiler should emit the first message for both cases.
