digitalmars.D.bugs - gdc compiled program seg fault

I'm having trouble getting a trivial d program working properly. I'm trying
with gdc both with the prebuild binaries downloaded from
and with a version I built myself. I installed the prebuilt one in /usr/local.
For the one I built, I specified d version 2, a prefix in my home dir and
static and no shared options to allow it compile. I'm on fedora 9.

gdc compiles the program fine and it runs. As long as I enter words, it echos
them back. But when I hit ctrl + d to signal eof, it seg faults.

$ cat test.d
import std.stdio;

int main()
        char[] buf;
        while ((buf = readln()) != null)
                writef("%s", buf);
        return 0;

$ gdc -Wall -g test.d -o test

$ ./test
<I typed ctrl + d here.>
Segmentation fault

$ gdb ./test

I'm not sure if this is the right place to report this. If somewhere else is
better, please let me know where.
