See bugs from integer overflows, for example.
A "battle" that I'm willing to "fight" every day :-)

D is a bit better than C in this regard, if you write a short program in C and then you write a similar program in D, you will probably put quite less bugs in the D version (I think in C# you put a bit less bugs than D, because the C# compiler is a little more strict).
