After reading all of the responses here, I realized that there might be a safe way of trapping errors before they hit the OS. Create a macro that surround try, catch, and throw in a header that works at the root level of all of your source files. Have the macros resolve to try, catch, and throw iff a debug value is defined, but into no ops if it isn't. This way you can have a all of your code handle errors internally before the program is force killed for the test versions, but you can strip out the test code for the golden releases. Just my 2 cents.
