------- Comment #1 from clugd...@yahoo.com.au  2009-04-08 02:08 -------
I've changed the title, since I believe this bug is extremely serious.
Simpler example:
--------------
enum ubyte[4] a = [5,6,7,8];

void main()
{
  int x=3;
  assert(a[x]==7);
}
-----------
Interestingly, compiling with -O gives
bug.d(7): Error: variable a used before set

which shows that the initializer is being ignored.
My opinion is that that's correct -- the only reason you're using an enum is so
that it doesn't appear in the executable! Using a variable to index into the
enum is arguably equivalent to taking the address of the enum, and should
therefore be illegal -- use "immutable" instead.
