there exist more problems. Some functions (for instance
KiDispatchException) leave a TRY block with a return statement. Quoting
http://www.reactos.com/wiki/index.php/PSEH: /"Absolutely do not use
*return* inside a try block/: this will lead to crashes, or worse
undetectable corruption, because some per-thread system state will still
refer to local variables of the function you've returned from."
