* Use test case from bug #58780.
* Run "make plainthrow"
The problem is that there's an implicit try/catch handler in the native-to-managed wrapper, and that try/catch handler throws the exception again (instead of rethrowing it, which would preserve the stack trace): https://github.com/mono/mono/blob/83020f1270ecbdfcbdf02cee687beadcba7c89ae/mono/metadata/marshal.c#L12369
Implementing a mono_reraise_exception and using that instead fixes the bug: https://gist.github.com/rolfbjarne/79ef3ca886743b4811f09b182609be6c
