Bug#902002: abnormal handling of exceptions

Package: g++-7-arm-linux-gnueabihf
Version: 7.3.0-20cross1
Severity: normal

My colleagues and me have stumbled upon a very strange bug when
compiling and linking software for armhf target. Using two attached
source files:

$ g++ -g -c test.cc && gcc -g -c test2.c && g++ -g -static -o test test.o test2.o && ./test
$ arm-linux-gnueabi-g++ -g -c test.cc && arm-linux-gnueabi-gcc -g -c test2.c && arm-linux-gnueabi-g++ -g -static -o test test.o test2.o && qemu-arm -L /usr/lib/arm-linux-gnueabi ./test
$ arm-linux-gnueabihf-g++ -g -c test.cc && arm-linux-gnueabihf-gcc -g -c test2.c && arm-linux-gnueabihf-g++ -g -static -o test test.o test2.o && qemu-arm -L /usr/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf ./test
terminate called after throwing an instance of 'std::exception'
terminate called recursively
qemu: uncaught target signal 6 (Aborted) - core dumped

I'm using qemu to demonstrate behaviour, however exactly the same
results can be seen on real hardware.
