Right, I am pretty sure mixing different exception handling mechanisms
won't work. I also currently suspect that the -shared-libgcc and 
-shared-libstdc++ options are not really needed when building
libodb, etc., -- only when building your own (non-libtool) DLLs
and executables. This might also explain why ODB tests work fine.
They are also built using libtool and are probably linked to the
shared support libraries. I will need to investigate this further.

You mentioned in one of your previous emails that you modified
the 'embedded' examples in ODB to cause it to throw/catch the
exception. Did you build it using the supplied makefiles or
did you use something else?
