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. ServiceTestCase and Contexts

Hey Everyone,
   I don't know if I am doing something wrong here, but when I am
trying to use the ServiceTestCase class to test my Service, I cannot
get a context which points to the test project.  getContext() and
getSystemContext() both seem to point to the target project's
context.  The reason I need the context of my test app is that i have
some assets which i need to be able to use in order to test the
service in question.  Does anyone know of a workaround or could point
me at a way of resolving this?  (i looked through the source of
ServiceTestCase and didn't see another way)

Something similar to instrumentationtestcase's
getInstrumentation.getContext() is what I am looking for.

Thanks.

2. KGDB on Nexus One

I'm trying to do kernel debugging on my Nexus One, and I have been
following instructions from this website, 
http://bootloader.wikidot.com/android:kgdb;
but when I add the changes I run into errors, and I have been trying
to resolve them. I was wondering if someone got this to work or has
there been recent changes to the kernel to allow for kgdb? The branch
of the kernel that I have been modifying and using is: android-
msm-2.6.29-nexusone.
