> Why would you even see an exception if it is caught before it escapes? I would expect the C API to behave just as it currently does. What am I missing?

MSVC uses SEH for C++ exceptions.

Memory allocation fails in gcc code. Instead of returning NULL, Windows jumps to the SEH handler set in the MSVC code... *poff*
