Indeed. I should do that to see if I can reproduce the problem to submit a
proper bug report.

File_Ptr is wrapping a dvb_file * from libdvbv5 to try and make things a bit
for D and to ensure RAII. libdvbv5 is a C API with classic C approach to
handling objects and data structures.

My DStep/with manual binding is at https://github.com/russel/libdvbv5_d and
the application using it (which is causing the problems) is at 

I have a feeling that I am really not doing things in a D idiomatic way.
