It is not clear how exception_ptr is synchronized.

[ Resolution proposed by ballot comment ]

Make clear that accessing in different threads multiple exception_ptr objects that all refer to the same exception introduce a race.

[2011-03-08: Lawrence comments and drafts wording]

I think fundamentally, this issue is NAD, but clarification would not hurt.

Proposed resolution

Add a new paragraph to 21.8.6 [propagation] after paragraph 6 as follows:

[Note: Exception objects have no synchronization requirements, and expressions using them may conflict (6.8.2 [intro.multithread]). — end note]

Proposed resolution:
