But you have the above store too.
That doesn't write to the exception object, it only does a single
dereference (compared to the double dereference of the racy write), so
it writes to the local variable in the PERSONALITY_FUNCTION in
So that shouldn't race with other threads. I think.
TSan agrees. When I compile my test and yours (and include
libsupc++/pbase_type_info.cc in the executable, so the writes are also
instrumented by tsan) then I see races for the *(ptrdiff_t*)*thr_obj
writes but not the *thr_obj ones.
It's only the ptr-to-data-member case that scribbles in the actual
