--- Comment #1 from RazvanN <razvan.nitu1305@gmail.com> ---
I think that this bug report is invalid. As can be seen, the grammar for new expression is: https://dlang.org/spec/grammar.html#NewExpression .

So the parser sees `new A` and it thinks that you have the first form of new expression. And I think this is the right behavior. Since A is binded to int[1], the compiler thinks you are newing a type and it is illegal to allocate a static array with the GC. Adding this special case in the compiler is not worth it.

indeed, TIL `new int[1]` is like `new int[](1)`.
