All the examples I knew of were written whilst I was at BlackBerry,
and therefore are under NDA.
Try trawling the bug reports at winehq for demangle failures:
The hardest part with the MSVC mangling scheme is dealing correctly
with nested template templates combined with their symbol compression
scheme (the ten most repeated symbols get compressed into their
compressed index notation), because the template templates must be
marked out during a first pass and then recursed into (you can't do a
single forward pass with backtracking like with Itanium). Another
gotcha is that arrays and pointers sometimes have their meaning
inverted depending on context due to a historic bug in their mangler.
