It seemed to be in the cases that were reported. The compiler is broken so 
obviously anything can happen, but I think they are only using an 
incompatible runtime (or 2 runtimes, I've also seen mentions about the 
order between -lc and -lgcc_s) which doesn't recognize the exception but 
still handles the uncaught exception behavior.
