Not yet, but as I said in the other message, the a simple setjmp demo
application is an example. Other cases I've seen were with invalid
requirements to a DLL (use of an API that was not in the DLL). On a
PocketPC, this causes a dialog to pop up. On Windows Embedded CE the
application appears just not to start up.

I've been thinking about that too, I'll try to debug this but that's
hard with no debugger.

It isn't on the Windows Embedded for x86 that I'm using. But the
gdbserver code appears to be well written : it silently falls back to
something that does work.

I've not messed with that code because "if it ain't broke, don't fix
it". I could have surrounded it with #ifndef _WIN32_WCE but I didn't see
the point.
