Correct me if I am wrong (I know absolutely nothing about how the listview
code works) but a flaw of the 'exception based' solution would be if the
application allocated memory that would re-use the just freed memory pointed
This would mean that no exception would be triggered while the code would
still be wrong as it would write / read something that is clearly not what
Now one could say that knowing the heap allocation algorithms this case
should never happen, but well, better safe than sorry.
