Hey Marek, on master, the following program generates a compiler error, while roslyn compiles with without complaints:

    struct rigidbody { public float x; }

    class Program
        static rigidbody a;
        static ref rigidbody property_returning_struct_by_ref => ref a;

        static void Main()

/Users/lucas/roslyn/main.cs(11,61): error CS0023: The `.' operator cannot be applied to operand of type `rigidbody'
