I'm not personally overriding the SIGSEGV handler (though I may in the
future) but the Visual Studio debugger may be? Is that possible?
I do have a MonoObject** being pushed to mono_runtime_invoke, but even in
the most simple case (directly accessing a null variable) I'm not getting
back an NRE but an access violation reading location 0.
I noticed signal chaining was added recently. Do I need to turn this on /
off to get the behavior I'm expecting (mono handles most signals on its
own, before passing them on to the to the native code?)
