           Summary: Assertion failure: mtype.c 364 - using a forward-
                    referenced alias of an undefined type
           Product: D

            Status: NEW

          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: DMD
        AssignedTo: bugzilla at digitalmars.com

If I forward-reference a type that is an alias of an undefined symbol, DMD
crashes out.

enum : LCTYPE {

D:\My Documents\Programming\D\Tests\bugs\winnls.d(1): identifier 'DWORD' is not
Assertion failure: 't' on line 364 in file 'mtype.c'

after which DMD hangs.

It appears to affect all uses of such an alias as a type, as long as the use
precedes the alias declaration:
- declaring a variable or constant, whether at module, function or class/struct
- declaring a typedef
- declaring an alias of the derived pointer or array type
- using as a function return type
- using as a function parameter
