Thank you for your feedback and for the links to the bug reports!

The *.di files are generated by DMD when building the *.di files, 
not by hand.

I makes sense that it is an issue with DMD creating the *.di 
files, versus  importing.

Understood about editing the *.di files manually, but they are 
intended to be rebuilt depending on platform and arch.

However, manually editing the *.d file is an option.  I'm not 
sure if I have the technical knowledge to do this, but I'll 
consider after reviewing any other feedback.
