override': overriding virtual function has less restrictive exception specification than base class virtual member function 'base'

A virtual function was overridden, but under /Za, the overriding function had a less restrictive exception specification.

The following sample generates C2694:

// C2694.cpp  
// compile with: /Za /c  
class MyBase {  
   virtual void f(void) throw(int) {  
class Derived : public MyBase {  
   void f(void) throw(...) {}   // C2694  
   void f2(void) throw(int) {}   // OK
