digitalmars.D.learn - Allocating memory from library

Hi !
I just wondered if this code is valid:

void main() {
auto p = my_allocate();

// ...



void *my_allocate();
void my_free(void *);

Where my_allocate and my_free are in the external dll. Main 
question is: is this code transparent to GC? Will not it try to 
collect memory which is pointed by p after my_free?

The GC will only scan through and try to ECG memory that it owns. 
So that's safe.
