The last time I've been using VC6 is so long ago, I cannot really 
remember... VC7 and VS.NET are maybe a little faster than VS2005/VS2008, 
but to make them stall for seconds is not common neither for C++ nor for D.

The visualizer macros in autoexp.dat are quite complex and can be slow, 
especially if you have associative arrays with a lot of entries. Please 
try it without the autoexp.dat entries.
