I'm not going to dive into the yak shaving hole and check the Vim source tonight, but this warrants some investigation. If it's intentional, I'm not sure why; powerful things could be done with this working.

      It's actually in the todo list:

      Using ":call foo#d.f()" doesn't autoload the "foo.vim" file.
      That is, calling a dictionary function on an autoloaded dict.
      Works OK for echo, just not for ":call" and ":call call()". (Ted, 2011 Mar
