If you are going to be mixing C++ dynamically-loaded modules in a C
application, you'll have to link the C program with the C++ standard
library (NOT the C standard library). If you dont, you will find that
try..throw..catch blocks will crash the C application.
NOTE: if you're linking the C++ code directly to the C application the
compiler will do this for you.
We came across this problem with postgresql (a C application)
dynamically loading GEOS (a C++ component of PostGIS). Everytime GEOS
threw an exception, it would cause the DB to server to crash. It took a
long time to figure out how to stop this happening.
