I'm pretty sure it's a manifestation of bug 4269, the mother of all
template bugs.
As long as it remains unfixed, subtle changes in Phobos template code
will cause
corner cases to break; and others that previously failed will start to work.
This situation is no different to the any of the last dozen releases
in that regard.
4269 is really difficult to fix.

So I don't see it as any reason to delay the release.
