Closures referencing immutable variables declared inside a loop can observe how
these immutable values are changing - this should be impossible according to
the definition of "immutable".

$ cat closure.d
import std.stdio;

void main() {
    void delegate() res;
    foreach (i; 0..2) {
        immutable v = i;
        void printi() {
            writefln("ptr=%x value=%d", &v , v);
        if (i == 0) {
            res = &printi;

$ dmd closure.d
$ ./closure
ptr=b75bae44 value=0
ptr=b75bae44 value=1

As you can see, an immutable variable changed its value. The code above is
SafeD clean, i.e. doesn't use any dirty tricks that would subvert the
typesystem. (Except printing the pointer address, which is just for
demonstrating that it's the same value.)
