The are two scenarios of memory corruption in a function with a 
@trusted block. Either @trusted section is incorrect, or the 
@trusted section is given incorrect input. Safe code that has no 
deal with @trusted code cannot compromise safety.

So while the culprit can be outside of @trusted block, it will 
lower the number of suspects. It will give you a good idea of the 
required safety checks.
