Hm... I just tried it, it does work.  Were you thinking of something else?

example:

import std.stdio;

class A
{
    this()
    {
        foo(1);
    }

    void foo(int x)
    {
        writeln("A.foo");
    }
}

class B : A
{
    int x;
    this()
    {
        writeln("B.this");
        x = 5;
        super();
    }

    override void foo(int x)
    {
        writeln("B: ", this.x);
    }
}

void main()
{
    auto b = new B;
}

prints:

B.this
B: 5
