digitalmars.D - Static constructors

Docs say:
A static constructor is defined as a function that performs initializations
before the main() function gets control.

But gc is initialized only *in* the main function (gc_init function) - is it
normal to execute D code before gc initialization?

By 'main', the docs mean _Dmain, which is what you write as "main". The order is: gc_init static ctors unittests _Dmain etc
