I'm quite confident now that this is the issue. I added my vote to the  
bug. Does anybody know how much the runtime uses TLS? I'm thinking about  
the possibility of adding __gshared to all its static data.

An alternative workaround would be to install Vista or 7, but although I  
do have a legal Vista install disk, I would prefer an upgrade since I  
don't want to reinstall all my programs. Also, my computer barely meets  
Vista's minimum requirements.

I also might be able to rewrite lua.exe in D and preload my code in the  
executable. Most of Lua's functionality is in a library which would not  
need to be rewritten so this might be feasible.
