What about FP exceptions?

It probably would help if you post the complete list of exceptions
generated and the siginfo details (there must be a mapping in the
code), as from windows background I would expect it to be very limited
and far away from the general case.

Couldn't we arrange for a special return trampoline that is registered
upfront with a per thread exception object for each mapping, then fill
it in the handler with usefull information and have the trampoline return
it as the exception object? And have the application abort on recursive
exceptions of the same type?
