Sample code

struct foo{
  void unsharedfunc(){}
    void sharedfunc() shared {}
void main(){
    foo unsharedvar;
    shared(foo) sharedvar;

Output with dmd 2.037
(Bug report lists dmd 2.036 because 2.037 was not an option at the time)

$ dmd test.d
test.d(8): Error: function () shared is not callable using
argument types ()
test.d(9): Error: function () is not callable using
argument types () shared

Here's the kind of error message I would expect to see
test.d(8): Error: Only shared types can call shared functions
test.d(9): Error: Shared types can only call shared functions

Maybe the function or variable name could be worked into the message, but
that's the essence of what should be displayed.
