           Summary: CTFE bug causes if(ptr !is null) to pass when
                    ptr==null

Something is BADLY broken with CTFE:

struct AssociativeArray
{
    int *impl;
    int f()
    {
        if (impl !is null)
            auto x = *impl; // this is line 7
        return 1;
    }
}
void main() {
    int test()
    {
        AssociativeArray aa;
        return aa.f;
    }
    enum str = test();
}


This is not a fully minimized test case, but I've tried my best to reduce it as much as possible. With the latest dmd from git, this gives:

test.d(7): Error: dereference of invalid pointer 'AssociativeArray(null)'
test.d(15):        called from here: aa.f()
test.d(17):        called from here: test()


This is a VERY serious bug because apparently the condition (impl !is null) actually passes, even though impl is null!

This appears to be related to the current AssociativeArray magic (renaming the struct in the above code makes the bug go away).

This is very obscure, I don't think anybody else will ever encounter this. But it's an easy fix.
