C++ classes or structs with vtables are the same as D classes. C++
classes or structs without vtables are the same as D struct.
In this case, you should be using a D `extern(C++) class` so that it
matches the C++ code.
If you try exactly what I wrote, it might work better.

And you should use extern(C++) everywhere instead of extern(C),
otherwise you won't know when you've made mistakes that cause
segfaults. C declarations don't carry argument types, to extern(C)
can't tell you when functions don't match.
