      Removing -fno-sanitize-recover=undefined -fno-sanitize=vptr from ubsan.sh shows vptr errors in the following places:

      Here is an example

           [exec] src/thrift/generate/t_json_generator.cc:277:22: runtime error: downcast of address 0x000003f61d40 which does not point to an object of type 't_list'

           [exec] [WARNING:/thrift/src/test/ThriftTest.thrift:47] cpp generator does not accept 'noexist' as sub-namespace!

           [exec]     #8 0x417ec3 in _start (/thrift/src/compiler/cpp/thrift+0x417ec3)

      The problem here is this:

        } else if (ttype->is_list() || ttype->is_set()) {
          t_type* etype = ((t_list*)ttype)->get_elem_type();

      ttype cannot necessarily be cast to t_list*, since sometimes it is a t_set*. When it is a t_set*, the call to get_elem_type() is undefined behavior: section 9.3.1 "Nonstatic member functions [class.mfct.non-static]", paragraph 2 of the C++14 standard states "If a non-static member function of a class X is called for an object that is not of type X, or of a type derived from X, the behavior is undefined."

      This will be tough to fix completely, since one of these is an error in Boost that is present all the way through the latest Boost that is a vendor-supplied Ubuntu 14.04 package.
