So this <i>is</i> related to the SEH stuff. I asked here:

but no one answered me (sniff).

Ranjit, could you educate me more with this? I reread the related posts
but am still not getting what the core issue is. And I still need to know
what --enable-sljl-exceptions means.

It appears that -fcheck-references and -fuse-divide-subroutine will fix
NullPointerException and DivideByZeroException, but won't
fix the root of the problem, right?
