g++ (egcs) bug report

This is bug report for g++ (egcs, as you call it now :-) ).

Reading specs from /usr/lib/gcc-lib/i386-redhat-linux/egcs-2.90.27/specs
gcc version egcs-2.90.27 980315 (egcs-1.0.2 release)

my system is linux:
Linux localhost.localdomain 2.0.35 #3 Thu Aug 13 23:48:14 CEST 1998 i686 unknown
(actually this is standard Redhat 5.1 installation with newer kernel)

my binutils are:
$ rpm -q binutils                                                    

The problem is simple - I can't (in any way) use exceptions in shared
libraries on Linux. I'm including example.tgz with example program and 
Makefile, but this is only example - I've tried this in many ways, on
Redhat 5.1 with glibc and on Redhat 4.1 with ELF libc 5.x, with g++ 2.7.2
and -fhandle-exceptions, with g++ 2.8.1 and with egcs 1.0.2 - result 
is always the same, SIGABRT in place where throw is used.

Linking things static works fine (try make static; ./static), 
but I need dynamic linking in my project (few applications using one 
common - and big - set of classes).

It'd be very nice if you could me send some information about this 
problem - I've searched through dozens of FAQ's, newsgroups, asked 
many peoples, no one knows anything about this. 

BTW, debugging my test program I've found:

Program received signal SIGABRT, Aborted.
0x4008b6a1 in __kill ()
Current language:  auto; currently c
(gdb) where
#0  0x4008b6a1 in __kill ()
#1  0x4008b4cf in raise (sig=6) at ../sysdeps/posix/raise.c:27
#2  0x4008c6df in abort () at ../sysdeps/generic/abort.c:83
#3  0x400424b5 in __default_terminate ()
#4  0x400424da in __terminate ()
#5  0x40042b7d in __throw ()
#6  0x4000b510 in f1 () at
#7  0x8048854 in main () at

So I guess I can throw, but I cannot catch in *.so - maybe this will help 
you in any way.

P.S. I have read through diffs from 1.0.2 to the most current version of
     egcs and it doesn't seem this bug has been fixed - actually there's
     nothing about shared libraries there.
