Hi.  I'm porting a program from C++ to D and finally at the point to try running it.  Needless to say, there are bugs, and I'm trying to debug them.

I've applied the patch floating around to GDB 6.8 to support D.  I then take a trivial hello world program, compile with dmd -g and run inside gdb.  Whether or not I use the D patches, I get the following behavior.

Any suggestions?
