I have no idea yet. Maybe you try running with the stub garbage 
collector? There are many parts in the MSVC build which are not 
well tested. I always see memory corruption if the garbage 
collector is not working correctly.

(On Linux/PPC I had some strange errors in std.string because the 
garbage collector freed memory which was still in use. It turned 
out that the TLS segment was not set up. Something similar could 
be the case on Win64. See druntime/src/rt/msvc.c for the current 
initialization of memory segments.)
