I don't understand the gcc exception handling code, so
can you explain this in more detail? What is a cookie
in this case?
Also, in my testcase, if you comment out the delete p; line,
the testcase will still segfault. Looks like delete is
called in the stack unwind code for some reason, if you
don't call it yourself.
