[EDG C++ 3.9] definition of jmp_buf causes buffer overflow

                 Key: STDCXX-989
             Project: C++ Standard Library
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: 18. Language Support
    Affects Versions: 4.2.x
         Environment: Linux/EDG C++ 3.9
            Reporter: Travis Vitek
             Fix For: 4.2.x

The {{jmp_buf}} definition provided in {{include/ansi/_csetjmp.h}} is not as large as {{setjmp()}}
is expecting. This causes a buffer overflow when running tests that use the test driver ({{rw_test}}),
which results in data corruption. If you run the tests with {{--trace}}, you will see that
the _clause_ field of the output is always corrupt after the first use.

The following shows the expected size for us...

$ cat u.cpp; eccp u.cpp && ./a.out
#include <setjmp.h>
#include <stdio.h>

int main ()
    printf ("%u\n", sizeof (jmp_buf));
    return 0;

The definition of {{jmp_buf}} in {{include/rw/_csetjmp.h}} is a buffer of 8 bytes.
