I would say that it is definitely a bug, if D is supposed to initialize memory 
to zero when it is allocated.
The assignments obviously replace the initialize to zero, which makes sense 
except in this example. I can only think of goto being the problem how else 
could you skip the initialization.
Perhaps the compiler should initialize to zero if there is a goto even if the 
initialization is overridden except for void initialization.

This should even be allowed in D1 let alone D2 or SafeD.

:) just my two cents.
