I'm making a small 1-file http server but I get an access violation when 
a client requests a big document (~480KB).

disassembly:
_D9invariant12_d_invariantFC6ObjectZv:

The code is hardly readable! I was just playing around with some socket 
stuff. It's another test program gone bezerk.

I have no idea why it's crashing. I see "bigAlloc" and it must be the 
allocation of the 480KB needed for the document (std.file.read).

{ if (c.classInvariant) { (*c.classInvariant)(o); } c = c.base; } while (c); } 'o' is set, but its vptr is null; also o.monitor is null. Lio. By the way, I had to tweak quite a lot in win32.mak to get it to work :S

Seems to be a problem in the GC.

I noticed I'm not saving the Thread pointer anyway. When I create a 
Thread[] list and add the new threads to the list, the problem doesn't 
happen.

The strange thing is that Thread.getAll() DOES contain the thread, so it 
shouldn't have been collected in the first place.

Is the Thread.getAll() array not scanned by the GC?

I'd start tracking it backwards to find out where o got set with a null 
vptr.
