wait why the heck is it using .stringof at all? This inside dmd 
itself? I know it uses mangle toChars in places but the stringof 
thing should be for user diagnostics only, no internal use.

that might be the real bug perhaps it just called toChars when it 
should have called toMangle or whatever the function is called.
