MySQL++ pushes the standard libraries harder, in more places, than most 
programs.  In particular, "most programs" on Linux systems are C-only, 
so they don't stress STL and such at all.

If the situation is that drastic, I'd think more people would be 
reporting this problem.  The oldest version you've tried, 1.7.35, is 
over three months old, yet you're the first to report this problem. 
Seems specious to blame MySQL++ based on such thin evidence.

Is your program multi-threaded?

Since you can't have multiple queries running at the same time on a 
single connection, there's never a need to have multiple query objects. 
  Just keep one generic one, and .reset() it between uses.

Similarly, you might also be able to use just one Result object.

Use ++rowp here.  Postincrementing is more efficient; it's a moot point 
for primitive types like ints, where the compiler can optimize away the 
difference in cases like this, but not in the case of classes.

It looks sane to me.

When you get a crash, load up the core file in gdb and get a backtrace.
