The following compiles without error:

char[2] b()()
    char[2] ret;
    return ret;

string a()
    return b();

Changing b to a normal function causes the correct error message that an implicit conversion of char[2u] to string is not possible.

Note that this affects std.digest.digest.toHexString(). Returnung
toHexString(digest) from a function will result in a corrupted string.
