Hi Boris,

Although Pascal's answer is a bit, let me say, "pascal-cuoqesque", it 
contains all the answers:

1) in Beryllium-2 and Why 2.21, the pragma JessieTerminationPolicy is 
not available yet

2) I don't know any workaround, except ignoring the unsolved VC

Thus I would recommend to upgrade to Boron/Why-2.26, and use

     #pragma JessieTerminationPolicy(user)

and finally:

3) terminates clause is not supported by Jessie even in the most recent 
version. This is documented and if you look carefully you should see a 

Let me finally remind that Jessie/Why is open source software, so 
anybody willing to contribute the support of terminates clauses is welcome.
