I haven't spent the time to dig in and report it properly, but based on some of what I saw recently on a project I have, the module with main in it didn't have its tests run, as if dub's didn't compile it when compiling the unit tests. The tests in the other modules were definitely run though. So, I think that dub probably does have a bug with regards to how it handles the module with main in it.

Actually it seems worse than that. Even with "dub -b unittest" it appears that Dub  compiles main.d without the -unittest flag to ldc2 and so the normal application runs.

And different behaviour with different build options, at least when using dmd, but I think the same is true for ldc2:

For me it works with "dub test" using DMD. But Dub does not seem to include its own "main" for running the tests.

These are the interesting flags that Dub uses when invoking DMD when "dub test --verbose" is run:

-debug -g -unittest -w
