declared as throw(EOFException), but the std::vector<ISegment*> in there 
could throw std::bad_alloc. Of course you have to actually catch those 
exceptions somewhere. ;)

std::invalid_argument instead.

This calls for some kind of auto_ptr. ;) The copy constructor and 
operator= of DASHManager should be disabled as well (i.e., make them
