digitalmars.D - profiling in heavily concurrent D2

As the manual states the profiler in dmd does not support multithreaded 
applications, i suggest to change that sometime soon since D2 is 
targeting concurrent application development in particular.

Walter, where does that profiler come from and is it possible/hard to 
make it threadsafe ?

You can always use other free profiling tools such as cachegrind.
