The error that I get is this:
[newtest.ck]:line(9): cannot assign '@=>' on types 'int' @=> 'float
[newtest.ck]:line(9): ...(reason: --- incompatible types for assignment)
What is happening is that the implicit cast of an int to a float that
happens in non-array land isn't happening inside of the array.
Remember that if you put a number on the left then you are
initializing the values and if you put the numbers in the bracket
beside the type you are declaring the size of the array.
// an array of size 1 with a value of 9
 @=> int foo;
// sparse array with a size of 9 with the value 1 at index 0
 @=>int bar;
You seem to be a bit confused about the meaning of these lines. But
yes, there is a bug there, just not the one you thought.
