you can override the default exception handling to skip the global try/catch block and then GDB will halt instead of letting it run.

You can also add a breakpoint in a specific exception constructor or throw clause (for example find out line and column by browsing source) or check this forum post: https://forum.dlang.org/post/ucjzpvtpslyvskgykjxr@forum.dlang.org

an example:

$ gdb myprog
$ break _d_throwc
$ break _d_throwdwarf
$ run

then when it breaks,

$ bt

because the breaks are always a bit deeper than the interesting stuff.
