In core.threads, there is a function called thread_joinall() which supposedly
joins all non-daemon threads. At present, it's implementation is

extern (C) void thread_joinAll()
{

    while( true )
    {
        Thread nonDaemon = null;

        foreach( t; Thread )
        {
            if( !t.isDaemon )
            {
                nonDaemon = t;
                break;
            }
        }
        if( nonDaemon is null )
            return;
        nonDaemon.join();
    }
}


Notice that the last if statement _returns_ if the thread is a daemon thread.
That means that the function joins every thread until it finds a single daemon
thread, so it's _not_ going to join all non-daemon threads unless there are no
daemon threads or all of the daemon threads are at the end of the range
generated by opApply(). So, if I understand correctly what the function is
supposed to be doing, it should be something more like this:


extern (C) void thread_joinAll()
{
    foreach( t; Thread )
    {
        if( !t.isDaemon )
            t.join();
    }
}


This still might have issues though if the list of running threads changes
while thread_joinAll() is running. I think that opApply() will iterate over the
list of threads as they exist when opApply() is called, but if any threads are
joined while opApply() is running (likely because joining a thread causes
another thread to join in addition to the one join() was called on), then you
could get a double-join happening, which would currently result in an exception
being thrown. So, there may also need to be a way to verify that a thread
hasn't been joined before attempting to join it. And of course, some locking
primitives may be necessary to make sure that there aren't any race conditions
in doing so.
