If a pure function tries to return a struct, the return value becomes garbage.


struct Foo
    int x, y
    real z;

pure Foo makeFoo(const int x, const int y)
    return Foo(x, y, 3.0);

int main()
    auto f = makeFoo(1, 2);
    writeln(f.x, f.y, f.z);

Possible cause:

The compiler might be optimizing makeFoo to

pure void makeFoo(ref Foo f, const int x, const int y)
    f = Foo(x, y, 3.0);

in order to prevent returning the entire struct on the stack. Since makeFoo is
pure, this optimization breaks the program.
