I copied the code from outbuffer.d to a new file. It looks like this:
import outbuffer;
int main(){
    OutBuffer buf = new OutBuffer();

    //printf("buf = %p\n", buf);
    //printf("buf.offset = %x\n", buf.offset);
    assert(buf.offset == 0);
    buf.write("hello");
    buf.write(cast(byte)0x20);
    buf.write("world");
    buf.printf(" %d", 6);
    // printf("buf = '%.*s'\n", buf.toString());
    return 0;
}

If I run this code I code crash with this backtrace:
(gdb) run

I do not think that this should happen.

I'm running DMD 0.69 on a Debian/unstable box Libc version 2.3.x


Another point. I wrote about a generic way for printing objects. Now it seems Outbuffer is the answer, unfortunatly there's not function for printing an Object. I wonder if this patch would work:
    void write(Object o){
        reserve(o.toString().size);
        write(o.toString());
}

Try deleting lines of code from it until the problem goes away, that way at least it's down to which line is the problem.

The bugs seems to be with printf:
This works:
import outbuffer;
int main(){
    OutBuffer buf = new OutBuffer();

    //printf("buf = %p\n", buf);
    //printf("buf.offset = %x\n", buf.offset);
    assert(buf.offset == 0);
    buf.write("hello");
    buf.write(cast(byte)0x20);
    //buf.write("world");
    // buf.printf(" %d", 6);
    printf("buf = '%.*s'\n", buf.toString());
    return 0;
}

this crashes:
import outbuffer;
int main(){
    OutBuffer buf = new OutBuffer();

    //printf("buf = %p\n", buf);
    //printf("buf.offset = %x\n", buf.offset);
    assert(buf.offset == 0);
    buf.write("hello");
    buf.write(cast(byte)0x20);
    //buf.write("world");
    buf.printf(" %d", 6);
    printf("buf = '%.*s'\n", buf.toString());
    return 0;
}
