> The library uses a system of functions for platforms that don't support exceptions. The
__rw_throw function calls __rw_vfmtwhat() to get a string describing the exception that has
occured. Under some conditions the string is allocated from the heap as an array of characters.
Eventually __rw_throw invokes a function via pointer (__rw_throw_proc) that is supposed to
process the exception (possibly by throwing a real exception object). Unfortunately the test
does not deallocate the string that was allocated by __rw_vfmtwhat().
