digitalmars.D.ldc - LDC asserts cause win32 exception

using an assert and LDC causes a wierd unknown exception in 
windows using latest ldc's. In dmd the asserts simply error and 
show the message but in ldc they give a kernel error and no way 
to know what has gone wrong.

More details please (target architecture, LDC version, Visual Studio/WinSDK version, 'kernel error'...). Wrt. 'no way to know what has gone wrong': attaching a debugger may be enlightening. ;) With LDC 1.2, we now generate a backtrace for each exception, so I'm guessing that's causing your problems, but without further details, I can only speculate.

Windows, latest ldc x86 as I said(whatever is on the d/l page). I tried multiple versions. I did attach a debugger. As I said, it happened on an assert. Instead of telling me the assert error(e.g., assert("This is an error");) it gives a kernel error(unhandled win32 exception or whatever). DMD gives the assert error correctly on the same code. Either ldc is crashing in the assert or it simply isn't asserting it correctly.
