The CNI document from libgcj says:

  Basically, this means that you cannot in C++ catch an exception value 
  (Throwable) thrown from Java code, nor can you use throw on a Java
  exception value from C++ code, and expect to be able to catch it in
  Java code. We do intend to change this.

Is this info out of date or just incorrect? I've spotted many
"try { .. } catch (jthrowable ..) { .. }" constructs in the libgcj
