Non-atomic ops allowed on shared variables?

I thought this wasn't allowed:

shared uint threadsCount;

void bumpThreadsCount()

void main()

According to TDPL it should error and we should use atomicOp from
std.concurrency instead. atomicOp is what I've used so far if I had to
use shared variables. Has ++ suddenly become atomic automatically or
is this a bug?
