Is the offending declaration nested inside a class or function 
They seem to be working for me, so I suspect there might be other forces
of chuck at work here.

Another workaround, instead of declaring each element, you might try
the new operator (though it could be subject to the same bug as above):

obj @ o[4];
for( int i; i < o.cap(); i++ )
     new obj @=> o[i];

Sorry for the troublesome bug.  We will take a deeper look into this.
If you can pinpoint a demonstrative program (short as possible) that
behaves incorrectly with these issues, it would help quite a bit.
