Hi again,

I am still working with my intermediate gcc 4.7.2, but I also wrote a
test for C++ exceptions.
It works for me on Cygwin (4.5.3) and on Linux (4.3.4) with both
shared and archive libraries.
On Solaris with my broken compiler, it dumps core with both (so, not
limited to shared libs).

My Solaris tools don't recognize it:

shex> gdb --nw core

"/home/emagiro/tmp/shex/core": not in executable format: File format
not recognized

(gdb) q
shex> file core
core:          invalid ELF object
shex> type file
file is hashed (/usr/bin/file)

...but Linux file does:

shex> file core
core: ELF 32-bit MSB core file, SPARC, version 1 (SYSV)

So, I'll be back when I have a consistent tool chain.
