Why does this opCmp function not work

So, here we have an opCmp function for a class named shape. It
compares the .volume of each shape:
int opCmp(shape rhs)
{
int exp;
if(this.volume == rhs.volume)
exp = 0;
else if(this.volume > rhs.volume)
exp = 1;
else if(this.volume < rhs.volume)
exp = -1;
return exp;
}
here is how I would use it:
shape test = new shape(pos);/*Ignore the constructor argument
it's not relevant here*/
shape test1 = new shape(pos); //same variable
writeln(test == test1);
writeln(test.opCmp(test1) == 0);
Both .volume are the same, but the output says this:
false
true
note that the documentation for comparing classes with an opCmp
function defined is said to be this: x.opCmp(y) op 0
can anybody explain this to me?
