Thanks :) Took a while, but I got there.

I'm using dmd v2.040 with the gdb patches (gdb 6.8), which could explain 
the difference in error messages. I might have to give it a shot, as 
that error message looks far more useful than what I'm getting out of 
6.8. I'll keep playing for a bit, and if I don't start getting somewhere 
I'll try it :)
