It seems to be a problem with the compiler optimizations of g++ 4.2 on alpha:
The execption (::std::invalid_argument) is thrown in test11 of
generalizedaffineimage3.cc as expected, but the catch clauses don't do what they
should do when compiled using -O2. It's fine with -O0 and this bug seems to be
solved in g++ 4.3. I'll refrain from reporting a bug against the gcc package and
rather add a hack that enforces the use of 4.3 when compiling the tests.
I'm testing this hack at the moment and will upload 0.10-3 to unstable once the
Sorry for the noise,
