#7750: iostreams & thread cancellation issue
 Reporter: Oleg.Dolgov@… | Owner: turkanis
     Type: Bugs | Status: new
Milestone: To Be Determined | Component: iostreams
  Version: Boost Development Trunk | Severity: Problem
 Keywords: iostreams pthreads exceptions |
 In NPTL thread cancellation is implemented using exceptions.
 The iostreams functions contains a catch-all clause which does not rethrow
 the exception. This is possible to expect but should really never happen
 in any code. The rules C++ experts developed state that catch-all cases
 must rethrow. If not then strange things can happen since one doesn't
 always know exactly what exceptions are thrown.

 Simple patch for sync functions attached.
