Hi all!

I use protobuf in my c++ app on Ubuntu 14.04 system. libprotobuf-dev, 
libprotoc-dev packages has static linkage with app. Important to note that 
this packages builded WITHOUT -DNDEBUG compiler flag (i.e. debug/test mode, 
where GOOGLE_DCHECK macro on).

I have the next objects to working with protobuf:

    class ExceptionMfec : public MultiFileErrorCollector
            void AddError (const string &filename,
                           int line, int column,
                           const string &message)
                const std::string errMesage =
                             //construct msg here

                throw std::runtime_error (errMesage);

    DiskSourceTree dst_;
    ExceptionMfec mfec_;
    Importer importer_ (&dst_, &mfec_);

    Now if I run my app using .proto file with syntax error:
    message Msg {
        required int32 foo = 1;

   I got correct error message like: "... Expected top-level statement 
(e.g. "message")." But if .proto file has logic error like:

    message Msg {
         required nonexistent_type foo = 1;

Then I got core dump with following output:

terminate called after throwing an instance of 'std::runtime_error'
  what():  CHECK failed: checkpoints_.empty(): 
Aborted (core dumped)

The core dump is:

#0  0x00007f9695476c37 in __GI_raise (sig=sig@entry=6) at 
#1  0x00007f969547a028 in __GI_abort () at abort.c:89
#2  0x00007f9695b6b535 in __gnu_cxx::__verbose_terminate_handler() () from 
#3  0x00007f9695b696d6 in ?? () from 
#4  0x00007f9695b68799 in ?? () from 
#5  0x00007f9695b6934a in __gxx_personality_v0 () from 
#6  0x00007f9695e12aa6 in __libunwind_Unwind_Resume () from 
#7  0x0000000000b84193 in google::protobuf::compiler::Importer::~Importer() 

Looks like protobuf invoke my AddError() function, then first exception was 
thrown. Then another exception was generated inside ~Importer() which 
declared as noexcept(true) and program terminated.

If what I have written above is true, then protobuf behavior is very 
strange: exception from destructor is bad, exception from noexcept 
destructor even worse.
Is there a workaround of this issue, in order to get correct error message?


I also see another approach to avoid issue with core. I may build protobuf 
package WITH -DNDEBUG, then GOOGLE_DCHECK macro off, and I'll get correct 
error message without core.
But I need protobuf runtime checks like ckeck that 'required' fields is 
present in serialized data, and other.

Can I check that required fields are present using some protobuf API?

Thanks in advance!
