Very unlikely: the function backtrace is what I would expect, modulo the
corrupt addresses. Indeed the "this" address is apparently different on
every call!
The regex being compiled is correct on the first basic_regex::assign call,
but corrupt thereafter, although the call stack is what I would expect to
see for the program path for that test. So maybe the stack is corrupted
after the exception is thrown?

I'm not completely sure, but I don't see any thrown exceptions being tested
in the thread-lib tests. I do know that I've seen exceptions doing strange
things with gcc in the past when threads were either unsupported, or only
partly supported. If I get a chance I'll try and put together a simpler
test case, but I'm basically stumped at present.

Thanks for the help, John.
