My best recollection would be to re-initialize the PIC register after
transitioning a shared library boundary during an EH flow control
thang.  The nonlocal_goto_receiver existed before the EH specific
receiver existed (exception_receiver), and code for that routine was
placed into the former routine.

Isn't this just obvious?  :-)
