ndk5 exception crash with third-party library

 i everyone, that's my first post, please be nice :)
My problem is as follows:

I have 2 library, namely lib1 and lib2 compiled with standalone
toolchain.
Both libs need to use stl and exception.
I am using ndkr5, and i have problem with exception !

According to the doc in ndk (document android-ndk-r5b/docs/CPLUSPLUS-
SUPPORT.html), it is mentioned that :
"
WARNING: IMPORTANT CAVEAT

AT THE MOMENT, OUR STLPORT IMPLEMENTATION DOES NOT SUPPORT
EXCEPTIONS
AND RTTI. PLEASE BE SURE TO NOT USE -fexceptions OR -frtti IN ALL
MODULES THAT USE IT.

IF YOU NEED THESE, PLEASE USE "gnustl_static".
"

so in my Application.mk, I have added:
APP_STL := gnustl_static

==================== my test with one single lib (promising)
=================================
I tested as follows:
1) Test 1 :
if i use try/catch within jni, it works with gnustl_static, but it
works as well for stlport_static. i assume it works for stlport_shared
as well
example:
try {
throw 1
} catch (in e) {
LOHI("catch int %d", e); // OK
}

2) Test 2 :
if i use try/catch within my external lib, say in lib1, then it works
with gnustl_static, but it works as well for stlport_static. i assume
it works for stlport_shared as well.
example:
try {
throw 1
} catch (in e) {
LOHI("catch int %d", e); // OK
}

3) Test 3:
if i throw the exception from the external lib and try to catch it
withing the jni code, then the app crashes if i use gnustl_static.
example:
lib.c
void func()
{
throw 1;
}
and in jni:
try{
func(); // CRASH
} catch (int e) {
LOHI("catch int %d", e);
}

I have figured that if i use stlport_static instead of gnustl_static,
then it works! This is contradictory to what documentation says ... ??
Can someone share their experience ?

Anyway, my first tests finished, I have tried with 2 libs instead of a
single one... and the problems started.

=========================== end my test with one single lib
================================


=================my external libs compiled with standalone toolchain
===========================
my 2 external libs are as follows:
lib1 has just one file lib1.c containing one function:
void lib1_func1(int *i)
{
throw 11;
}
According to doc android-ndk-r5b/docs/STANDALONE-TOOLCHAIN.html, it is
mentioned that:
"
The toolchain binaries *do* support C++ exceptions and RTTI by
default.
They are enabled by default, so use -fno-exceptions and -fno-rtti if
you
want to disable them when building sources with them (e.g. to generate
smaller machine code).

NOTE: You will need to explicitely link with libsupc++ if you use
these
features. To do this, use -lsupc++ when linking binaries, as in:

arm-linux-androideabi-g++ .... -lsupc++

"

so i compile and link against lsupc++ as:
arm-linux-androideabi-g++ -mthumb -O2 -g -Wall -fpic -c lib1.c -o
lib1.o
arm-linux-androideabi-g++ -shared -Wl,-soname,liblib1.so lib1.o -lsupc
++ -o liblib1.so

lib2 has just one file lib2.c containing one function:
void lib2_func1(int *i)
{
throw 21;
}
i compile it as (linking against libsupc++):
arm-linux-androideabi-g++ -mthumb -O2 -g -Wall -fpic -c lib2.c -o
lib2.o
arm-linux-androideabi-g++ -shared -Wl,-soname,liblib2.so lib2.o -lsupc
++ -o liblib2.so

=================== end external lib
===================================================

===================== Android.mk

I beliee your problem shall be discussed on NDK list, not here (SDK).

 sorry. I intended to post it on ndk list. my mistake.
I have re-posted to ndk list.

Thanks.

1. override back button

Can someone help me understand how to stop the back button from
exiting out of my program?  I want it to just return to my main menu
or exit if pressed on the main menu but when I override the method it
still exits.  Here is what I currently have:

                @Override
                public boolean onKeyDown(int keyCode, KeyEvent event)  {
                    if (keyCode == KeyEvent.KEYCODE_BACK && 
event.getRepeatCount()
== 0) {
                        if (animation.state != 1){
                                animation.state = 1;
                                return true;
                        }
                        else return false;
                    }

                    return super.onKeyDown(keyCode, event);
                }

I have messed with it a little but my program is always still closes.

2. Quick Search Box - Getting results in "All"

I can get search results in my app's search area (selecting the app
icon in the 2.3 quick search box to restrict the search to my app).

However, i dont see any of my results when All is selected.  Does
android just deprioritize them?  What determines what search results
show up in the All category?  Is there something I need to do?

Thanks
