ive stumbled upon this yesterday in my project.
here is a working minimal example https://pastebin.com/SxGNDNia
here is the output of mono -V
Mono JIT compiler version 22.214.171.124 (tarball Wed Nov 8 20:37:08 UTC 2017)

(didnt know if i shouldve selected 5.4 in the above version selector, but it didnt fit the date)
im on ubuntu 16.04
in the example i deliberately create a stackoverflow exception (like it accidentally happened in my codebase). in the outer try catch i then catch an exception, which is null. i would either expect a stackoverflowexception instance, or the same behaviour as .net framework (the code will let the runtime abort the process on windows).
the example code bit is part of a visual studio solution (vs 2017) (i can also provide the whole project if needed)
i compiled the solution on linux using msbuild (cd into solution dir, call msbuild)
then i ran the exe with mono --debug <exe name>
instead of the program continuing to run, and telling me there was a fault detected, i would expect some message like "process was aborted due to stack overflow", just like .net framework does. (personally i would prefer it to throw the exception so i can log it, but framework doesnt do it either).
Created attachment 25841 [details]
I can reproduce with Mono 126.96.36.199 (2017-10/efce3b256a5).
It doesn't behave like a typical stack overflow exception where there is nested stack overflow, and it actually behaves quite decently, so I don't really know why we get a `ex = null` at the end.
Zoltan, would you mind taking a look at this one?
