digitalmars.D - Weird Linking Issue

I've not been having a good coupla of days... All these issues I haven't 
been able to figure out.  Well, this one's a linking one.  I'm running 
DMD 0.113 on Linux. Here's GCC's output:

Now, GCC appears to be right.  Those symbols don't exist.  In fact, I 
ran those symbols through the demangler that I found on the dsource 
bindings project, and it can't make heads or tails of them.

What are they?  Where is DMD getting them from?

My only guess is that this is related to the "Weird Compile Error" I was 
having, wherein DMD gave me this error:
src/com/neuralnexus/nnengine/nodeweb.d(436): function 
com.neuralnexus.nnengine.nodeweb.nnWebNode.getImmediateChildren cannot 
access frame of function __funclit9

Until I changed the line:
public Nodes nodes;
to:
public static Nodes nodes;
Wherein Nodes is a struct.

This feels like a compiler bug, but I'll be damned if I can figure out 
what the ^ ! $# is going on... I'm getting to my whit's end on this one.

TIA
John

I have this inkling feeling that DMD was once a C compiler, and it's 
treating the static attribute as if this was C.
