Hi, this is probably any problem with exception filtering support in desctop version of mono runtime.
#Here is simple code repro:

class Program
    static void Main( string[] args ) => Process();
    public static void Process()
            throw new Exception();
        catch ( Exception ) when ( ExceptionFilter( default( byte ), default( Foo ) ) )

    [MethodImpl( MethodImplOptions.NoInlining )]
    private static bool ExceptionFilter( byte x, Foo item ) => true;

    public struct Foo
        public long Part1 { get; }
        public long Part2 { get; }

        public byte Part3 { get; }

#application falls only of sizeof( Foo ) > 16b
