Might be a stupid question, but why do you expect that Qt would do anything 
with exceptions?

it is still fine to compile Qt without exceptions support. If you want 
exceptions fine - use them. But don't expect that Qt makes use of them. 

what do you think what will happen when exceptions cross signal/slot borders, 
even when Qt is compiled with exception support? Qt does not handle any 
exceptions at all, so letting them pass through Qt is probably producing very 
unwanted things. 

And if you don't pass the exceptions through Qt - you can compile Qt without 
exceptions support. Thats why we recommend it.
