I want to add that, in my experience, the single most important
contributor to producing a bug-free product is a thorough test suite.
Yours has proven its worth over and over, and is doing so again in
helping proof the 64 bit GDC.
The best tool to help create a test suite is a coverage analyzer, like
-cov for DMD and -gcov for gcc. I'm guilty of not using them enough, but
their worth is beyond dispute.
The other way to create a test suite is to put every bug report into it
after it's fixed. That one I do do diligently, and you do too.
