No, unlikely.

I suspect you called a pure virtual method.  Doing so is wrong, in
about the same way that referencing a null pointer is.

If you can't trim this down to a small testcase and submit it as a bug
report, then we can't help you further.  If you want to discuss this
feature of C++, you can always ask on comp.lang.c++, or check out a
good C++ book.  If you can trim it down, feel free to forward it on,
and we can take a look at it and let you know for sure.
