using std:make_shared to allocate an object that throws during the constructor causes a heap corruption.

Thanks for reporting this bug. We've already fixed it (back in August) and the fix will be available in VC11.

The problem, amusingly enough, was that make_shared<T>() invoked placement new with "new", which will consider class-specific operator new() implementations (or in this case, class-specific operator delete()). The fix was to use "::new", which is guaranteed to invoke "true placement new" at global scope (which is a no-op).

If you have any further questions, feel free to E-mail me at stl@microsoft.com .

We believe the problem is with placement new.
