  Are you using the correct command line options to compile with exceptions?

  Are you doing the final link using g++ rather than gcc?

  Do all functions have the correct throw specifiers on their prototypes?

  Maybe the same problem: we never resolved it yet: 

  Are there any shared libraries involved?

>Any suggestion?

1)  Keep trying to come up with a simple testcase?
2)  Switch gdb into assembly code view and debug the problem by seeing what
actual values are in registers, stack and memory and what actual machine
code instructions are getting executed to cause the problem?

Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
