Description Rodrigo Kumpera 2015-09-29 10:48:39 UTC
We don't call mono_invoke_unhandled_exception_hook for all unhandled exception.

This is making the iOS team job harder when debugging issues related to it.

We should fix this puppy and add tests for that entrypoint.

Apparently unhandled exceptions in finalizers are ignored if there's an AppDomain.UnhandledException handler.

Just to save what I found out:

There's mono_unhandled_exception [1], which doesn't always exit [2] nor call the hook.

mono_unhandled_exception is called by:
1) ves_icall_System_Runtime_Remoting_Messaging_AsyncResult_Invoke [3], but that function doesn't check if the process should exit (nor does it call the hook)

2)  mono_thread_internal_unhandled_exception [4], which exits (but doesn't call the hook) if Environment.ExitCode is 1 (which the user can change if they wish).

3) mono_handle_exception_internal [5], which also doesn't call neither the hook nor does it ever exit.

[2] It's setting Environment.ExitCode to signal that the process should terminate, but the user can also set this in any event handler.
