[DDBG] failed to load COFF
Ever seen something like this in ddbg?:

"""
Ddbg 0.11 beta - D Debugger

Failed to load COFF image "gui.exe": DataReader.seek beyond end of data

"""

The exe runs fine.  I just did a dsss clean/dsss build and that didn't 
make the error go away.

It's 10MB.  I can put it somewhere on my website for you to download if 
you're willing.  Will you need all the ancillary DLLs it uses too, or is 
it enough to just get the single .exe?

I should also mention that I used to have no problem using ddbg on it so 
maybe I just hit some compiler limit or something.

only the exe is enough, i just need to test the COFF loader.

it's more likely that my COFF loader doesn't handle it correctly.

Having a similar problem:

I can send you binary/sources+build instructions to e-mail if that'll help.

Thanks!

it does, please do :)
since i don't implement the full COFF standard, corner cases pop up 
every now and then that the parser doesn't handle (properly). i can 
handle those with considerably less effort than i need to support COFF 
fully (which is useless, as long as DMD is the only source of input images).

I sent the binary on Sunday, did you get it?
