Can you find out where the code goes wrong?

You mean memory safety? The "other" safety can as well go into D 
directly, because it doesn't interfere with the goals of performance or 
system programming.

An example would be to introduce different kinds of casts: casts that 
are always safe (real-to-int, dynamic casts, ...), and casts that allow 
horrible (but sometimes needed) stuff like reinterpret casting pointers 
into integers.
