module handled_record;

template CObjects(alias destructor) {
    void f() {


module world;

import handled_record;

private void free() { }

alias objects = CObjects!(free);


$ dmd -c *.d
handled_record.d(5): Error: function world.free is not accessible from module
world.d(7): Error: template instance `handled_record.CObjects!(free)` error

The error disappears if I remove private keyword.

Is it a compiler bug? (In my understanding the alias symbol passed to a
template should be accessible by the template because it is explicitly passed
to the template, even if it is private.)
