ah ok, getting rid of STLport is a good idea in general.
i've looked a bit at the documentation of libstdc++, and it seems to
have a STL debug mode as well:
but currently LO doesn't seem to use it (couldn't find
-D_GLIBCXX_DEBUG); why is that?
OOo on non-STLport platforms didn't seem to use it either.
