Inspecting arrays works with the mago debug engine.

The default VS debug engine uses a visualization description language 
that just doesn't work with D type syntax.

You can switch the VS debug engine back to an older version by enabling 
"native edit and continue" in the global debugging options. This debug 
engine supports visualization macros in autoexp.dat. Visual D adds 
display macros for strings and arrays into this file.
