I'm sceptical, have you honestly been in this situation yourself?

 From my experience using D in production we have never had a 
compiler bug that blocked our work. We upgrade the compiler every 
6 months. The last bug encountered that meant we could not 
upgrade was in 2015 -- can't remember or be bothered to check the 
exact version. It did not block us because we always test the new 
compiler before pulling the switch, as we do for our C++ and 
Python code as well.
