Probably stack allocation doesn't matter much, as I think that would be

exceptions at all?

"C-style stack unwinding (using setjmp and longjmp from <csetjmp>) is
incompatible with exception-handling and is best avoided." (Stroustrup,
p. 433).

Which presumably means that in practice, the interaction between these
features is implementation-defined.

Well, as long as you don't longjmp "past" an C++ catch block, and don't
throw an C++ exception "past" an setjmp handler, there should be no problem I think. Or at least I can't imagine how a problem could arise..
