D - WinDbg tips

Would it be possible for one of you guys to post a few quick thoughts on how we

I've downloaded WinDbg, and compiled a small D program with -g to no avail. 
All 
I can see is some disassembly - nothing like what gdb put out in the NG post on 
1/18/04.  At least we could see the args array there.

Any tips on how to put breakpoints and/or step through code would be
appreciated 
too, or a current state for D debugging.

My executable is much larger with the symbols.  Here's what I am getting:

CommandLine: D:\dev\D\PanaETL\parsefiles.exe c:\etl\idq\work
Symbol search path is: *** Invalid ***
****************************************************************************
* Symbol loading may be unreliable without a symbol search path.           *
* Use .symfix to have the debugger choose a symbol path.                   *
* After setting your symbol path, use .reload to refresh symbol locations. *

And everyone else as well. It's a long time since I've used WinDbg, and I've
still got no idea how the D source works with debuggers.
