Darn. It'd be nice to be able to register a "catch all" in C on Unix. Oh

That's a great idea, I'll try that.

On a related note, in my example project if I throw an exception that 
isn't handled (on purpose), the program prints the "Unhandled Exception" 
information but doesn't exit as expected. It just sits there. I've 
attached the example project. Sorry for the size, I tried to pare it 
down as much as possible. I also tried rewriting it in a more basic 
form, but then it didn't seem to have this problem. I've tried this on (sled) and (vmware image).

Is this a bug, or am I doing something wrong?

Thanks for your help guys,
