digitalmars.D.announce - gc-rest (how STRANGE)

AAARGH!!! well for some strange reason the rest of my message was cut (maybe
some invalid character?). now I look like a jerk, so here's (finally) the rest
(2nd attempt):

uint gc_big_killer[1048576];
for (uint i=0; i<1048576; i++) gc_big_killer[i]=(i<<12)+2048;
// now try to allocate some big blocks a let the gc hunt them ...

(of course I know that vars are initialized, it's ok, helps the gc, indeed!) but
when a dynamic array of floats grows (using .length=something), the rest is
filled with zeroes instead of NaNs, does the documentation mention this? it
could be misleading, one would expect the rest to be initialized using the
default initializer .init)

strange: I have to wait for very long until my message gets posted, sometimes it
isn't posted at all :((

No, because it's a bug AFAIKS.

Indeed, which is why I think it's a bug.
