Bug#460264: g++-4.2: Please make it possible to make the "cannot pass objects of non-POD type ..." warning into an error
The warning generated at gcc/cp/call.c:4548 doesn't have a warning type

warning, debugging the problem is very difficult.
If one could add something like -Werror=pass-non-POD to the gcc options,
then this would save quite a few headaches here :)
Maybe something along the lines of...
