Please show your environment. Windows? On my Mac, No problem.

Thank you for your reply. I have been migrating some socket/thread code from D1
to D2 lately. One of changes is that Thread.this() must have super(&run) in it.
It seems when one of the thread doesn't have that line, strange things happen.
Can anyone confirm this code to reproduce error:

import std.stdio;
import std.socket;
import core.thread;

class SaboteurThread : Thread {
  this(){
    // super(&run); // comment this line for exception to be thrown when socket
is created in other thread
  }
  void run(){
    writeln("Saboteur running");
    while(true){}
  }
}

class SockThread : Thread {
  this(){
    super( &run );
  }

  void run(){
    try {
      auto s = new TcpSocket; // will throw wsock error WSANOTINITIALISED
(10093) on windows if SaboteurThread.this() has no super(&run) in it
      writeln("socket created");
    } catch (Exception e){
      writeln(e);
    }
    while(true){}
  }

}

void main(){
  auto x = new SaboteurThread;
  x.start;
  
  auto s = new SockThread;
  s.start;
  
  while(true){}
}

I triple checked it. 2.0.48 has problems with this, 2.040, 2.045 & 2.047 don't.

Errr... sorry guys.
Joke is on me.

Main threads exits before socket is created in new thread. Simple call to
sleep() fix this.

Current std.socket uses "static ~this" for WSACleanup. In this case, main thread calls "static ~this" before MyThread executes "new TcpSocket". std.socket workarounds: 1. static ~this -> shared static ~this Main thread calls WSAStartup and WSACleanup. 2. Create reference count sample code - http://ideone.com/vRMO0 3. other? I don't know the best way.
