>From what I understand order of events is as follows:

1. tu.second resolved (memory accessed)
2. ~test_case() invoked
3. ~test_unit() invoked
4. framework::deregister_test_unit( this ) is invoked
5. map.erase( tu )
6. free( ptr )

If what you saying is true we perform first step twice. Second time before 6th
step. Why would compiler do this?

Can you test it? just create temp pointer test_unit* tu_ptr = tu.second; before
