Description William Lupton 2001-07-26 20:03:19 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.75 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.16-22 i686)

Description of problem:
A gcc-2.96-94 C++ program throws an exception and apparently, rather than
being caught as expected, a piece of unrelated code in another module is
executed, followed by a SEGV.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. At present I cannot reproduce the problem outside my own environment.

Actual Results:  The exception was not caught correctly. Instead, an
unrelated piece of code (from a function that would have been called later
on) was executed, and the program SEGVd.

Expected Results:  The exception should have been caught and execution
should have continued.
