What I mean was there is no "hand-holding" in D programs,
so if there was a problem it will crash hard and not put
up a stack dump or some other kind of similar exception ?

There are assertions and contracts, but those are off for "-release".

But this in case, it's definitely a D bug. All the demos
work fine in wxWidgets (C++) and in wx.NET (C#), so they
should do so in wxD (D) as well ? Once "porting" is done.

Do compare with http://wxnet.sourceforge.net/, for most the examples ?

That is no problem, as I can easily handle testing on those platforms.

Definitely in wxD, I think it has to do with the destructors (in D,
all GC variables are undefined when the destructor finally runs...)
or just with plain old bugs or oversights (e.g. Unicode issues, etc)
