How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Compile the following program:

g++ -o foo foo.cc 
or
g++ -fexceptions -o foo foo.cc
foo.cc:
#include <iostream>
#include <exception>
using namespace std;
int main(int argc, char ** argv) {
        try {
                throw exception();
        }
        catch (...) {
                cerr<<"Caught!!";
                exit(0);
        }
}


2. Run foo.

	

Actual Results:  Program aborts with the message "Abort".

Oops. My bad.. at run time the dynamic linker was using a locally built
libstdc++ from gcc 3.1.
