test program

The attached program shows that std.signal sometimes emits signals on objects
free'd by the GC. Essentially, this can lead to memory corruption and

Note that the test program isn't really deterministic. On my Core 2 Duo, it
takes some seconds until the assertion fails. Sometimes it segfaults as well.

Looking into std.signal, there are several problems:
- Signal.emit doesn't check if the objects are still alive (probably the cause
for this bug)
- it calls rt_detachDisposeEvent on a possibly dead object in Signal.~this (may
be the cause for the segfault)
- it silently assumes the context ptr of a delegate is a D object (unrelated to
this bug)
