       <p>If you are calling XMLPlatformUtils::Initialize() a number of times, and then follow with
          XMLPlatformUtils::Terminate() the same number of times, only the first XMLPlatformUtils::Initialize()
          will do the initialization, and only the last XMLPlatformUtils::Terminate() will clean up

-
-    <q>I'm suddenly getting segfaults with Xerces-C 2.3.0;
-        why might this be?</q>
-    <a>
-      <p>The introduction of pluggable memory management into
-        Xerces-C, one of the main features of 2.3.0, means that
-        application writers have to be more conscious about
-        destructors being invoked implicitly after a call to
-        XMLPlatformUtils::Terminate().  For example, the
-        following code is guaranteed to produce a segmentation
-        fault under Xerces-C 2.3.0, while it happened to work
-        under previous versions (in fact, this was how our
-        SAXPrint sample was formerly written;
-        try-catch blocks removed for brevity):
-      </p>
-<source>
-void myParsingFunction()
-{
-    XMLPlatformUtils::Initialize();
-    SAXParser parser;
-    //parser.various method calls
-    XMLPlatformUtils::Terminate();
-} // seg fault here!
-</source>
-      <p>The reason this will produce a segmentation fault is
-        that any dynamic memory the SAXParser (or any other of
-        Xerces's parsers) needs to allocate is now allocated
-        by default by a static object owned by XMLPlatformUtils.
-        When the XMLPlatformUtils::Terminate() call is made, this
-        object is destroyed--and, consequently, so are all the
-        objects that it directly created.  This includes all the
-        objects dynamically allocated by the SAXParser.  When the
-        parser object goes out of scope, its destructor is
-        invoked, and this attempts to destroy all the objects
-        that it created--which have of course just been destroyed
-        by the static MemoryManager in XMLPlatformUtils.
-      </p>
-      <p>
-        To avoid this, one must either explicitly scope the
-        parser object inside calls to
-        XMLPlatformUtils::Initialize() and
-        XMLPlatformUtils::Terminate(), or dynamically allocate
-        the parser object and destroy it explicitly before the
-        call to XMLPlatformUtils::Terminate() is made.
-      </p>
-      <p>Another way of producing segmentation faults--that again,
-      unfortunately, was employed by some of our
-      samples--is to have calls to XMLPlatformUtils::Terminate()
-      in a catch block that catches any of Xerces's exceptions.
-      Since the destructor of the exception will implicitly be
-      invoked upon exit from the catch block, and since some of
-      the exceptions' destructors call on Xerces's
-      default memory manager to destroy dynamically-allocated
-      objects, their destruction will provoke a segmentation
-      fault even if a return statement is placed in the catch
-      block since the default memory manager will no longer exist.
-      This practice is now avoided in all our samples.
