This article describes some problems that may arise when trying to write
exception safe C++ code and at the same time using STL. This is
examplified with an implementation of a Singleton base class with a
Destruction Manager that satisfies Abrahams' Strong Exception Guarantee
[Abr97]. The Destruction Manager is based on the "Manager design pattern"
by Sommerlad and Buschmann [SB96] and it destroys all instantiated
Singletons in a controlled order. One part of the presented code is
analyzed for exception safety in a more formal way, as suggested by
