That does not work for me (GDB 8.3.5). I remember that there's a 
problem with D classes in GDB [1] (they have the same internal 
type as structs). This makes rewriting the expressions difficult 
without D semantic.


Ideally using ptype it would be possible to accurately fix the 
expression copied from the source.
