Thanks.  You just provide what I wanted / needed which is a sanity check.

I'll open a bug report and that might get me some help.

I think I've concocted a plan to get __cxa_atexit to work.  I am going to try that
first.  That may have utility in other ways.

I'm studying the GCC code at night.  What beautiful code.  I can't understand
most of it but it is so well polished.  Very nice code from what I've seen so far.

Is there any documentation about cxa_gaurd and its associated routines?  I
think I gather what all it is doing, etc but a general description would help.

Thank you,
