The following code produces erratic results.  I don't know where exactly the
culprit is, but I'm hoping I've reduced it enough that someone with a decent
mental model of how the compiler works will be able to finish the job.

import std.stdio;

double foo(int[] data, double q = 0.25) {
    immutable double N = data.length;

    // This actually affects the result, making it more severe and obvious
    // in addition to showing that the value is correct.
    stderr.writeln(N);  // Prints 8.  Correct.

    // lowEnd should be floor(7 * 0.25) == 1.
    immutable lowEnd = cast(size_t) ((N - 1) * q);

    // highEnd should be floor(7 * 0.75) - 1 = 4.
    immutable highEnd = cast(size_t) ((N - 1) * (1.0 - q) - lowEnd);

    // highFract should be 7 * 0.75 - 4 - 1 = 0.25
    immutable highFract = (N - 1) * (1.0 - q) - lowEnd - highEnd;

    stderr.writeln(lowEnd, '\t', highEnd, '\t', highFract);
    return highFract;
}

void main() {
    writeln(foo([1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8]));
}

Prints:

8
0    4545916    -4.54591e+06
-4.54591e+06
