then it's likely that some memory corruption prior to format() 
has broken the GC, and format's allocation of a string is what's 
failing. Try sprinkling `@safe` and and see what it complains 
about; try valgrind; try reducing your problem. I don't think we 
can help you more without a way to replicate the fault.
