          Issue ID: 19660
           Summary: 'export' keyword on OSX dynlib globals causing
                    segfaults

minimal example (Mac/Windows)

[DMD 2.084.0 on macOS 10.12]

The presence of 'export' on a global dynlib/DLL variable:

eg. "extern (C) export extern __gshared int someValue;"

... is causing inconsistent behavior between Mac/PC: keyword is required for
linking against DLL on Windows, but causes runtime segfaults* on Mac. Removing
'export' solves Mac crashes but then Windows linking fails.

* initially this issue was discovered due to the globals having incorrect
values. But the attached example is segfaulting.

LDC2 (1.14.0-beta1) does NOT exhibit the same issue.
