That shouldn't matter.  At the worst it should mean that the exception is not 
caught by any of the catch clauses given, so the "return 0" would be taken.

The only thing that should happen to an exception object after you're done with 
it is that objects thrown by value are destroyed.  In this case the pointer 
would be destroyed, but the memory it points to should not be deleted or anything.

Usually throwing a pointer is not what you really want to do, but it shouldn't 
cause a crash.
