It is saying that you have overridden a virtual method that has a
restricted throw list and made the throw list broader. (ie you went from
method does not throw anything to method can throw anything)

You need to change:

     virtual ~XBase() throw();
     virtual const char* what() const throw();

and probably also change the function body too.
