It's the verifyable_object_isvalid() function in thread.cc. The
if ((*object)->magic != magic)
results in a SEGV since *object is NULL. That should not be a problem,
in theory, since that's what the efault handler should be good for.
But for some reason, after this SEGV occured, nothing happens, it just
Are the constructors called before the exception handling has been
set up? The _cytgtls::handle_exception methid is never called.
