Basic question about size_t and ulong

Quoting the D documentation:
size_t is an alias to one of the unsigned integral basic types,
and represents a type that is large enough to represent an offset
into all addressable memory. And I have a line of code:
size_t huge = ulong.max;
GC.d(29): Error: cannot implicitly convert expression
`18446744073709551615LU` of type 'ulong` to `uint
Isn't ulong an integer? And isn't memory addresses 64 bits long?
size_t huge = uint.max; // compiles
works but now I'm just curious. I was just seeing what is the
largest dynamic array I could create.
