Thanks for the write-up. I'll expand on this a bit:

and I sent a response on this already.
I sent the following email last week. I think this defines (in my view)
a start on the C++ exception problems, and provides a detailed status of
what I've been up too:
Also it was a peer review request, and thanks very kindly to those
folks who replied. While discussing this, I'd like to re-invite people
to add comments, tell me if they think I am on the wrong track (or the
right one ;)), or want to add anything else.
I'm currently researching the mechanics of uw_install_context in gcc to
understand how program flow alteration occurs in the case of exceptions,
so that I can estimate teaching GDB how to detect these flow changes. I
think teaching GDB these mechanics will help, if not be the solution for
gnats pr 2495 and gnats pr 2488. I've run into -O optimization issues
when stepping through the many, many subroutines that are nested with in
the uw_install_context logic path, so I need to re-build GCC so that I
can correctly determine variable value and correct program logic.
I hope to have a rough estimate out before I leave on vacation for
Snowdonia this week.
