Calling cppu::getCaughtException on non-UNO exceptions (and relying on 
the C++ UNO bridge called internally by that to translate those to 
RuntimeException) is a bit of a stretch.  And it turns out 
<https://bz.apache.org/ooo/show_bug.cgi?id=114635> "C++ UNO bridge 
should convert non-UNO exceptions into RuntimeException" had indeed 
never been implemented at least for 
bridges/source/cpp_uno/gcc3_linux_intel.  But the current state is a 
convincing argument to port that trivial fix also to the bridge variants 
that are still missing it.  I'll take care.
