Hi Martin,

>void Lixo::lib_func() throw()

>The above code, will result in a call to std::unexpected() and thus to std::terminare() and from there abort() resulting in the application exiting without the stack unwinding to main().
>By specifying that the method 'lib_func()' throws nothing 'throw()' any thrown exception (because they are all unexpected) should generate a call to std::unexpected().

That was it! Silly me... :$

Thanks for the reminder, and to Lyle for also having a look.
