        Description

        -XX:ErrorHandlerTest=13 may sometimes fail to trigger the expected crash. We see this on Windows. Where one would expect a ACCESS_VIOLATION, the VM just quits immediately.

        The test jumps to an invalid function pointer. We may see here some sort of intrusion prevention.

        All these tests invoke undefined behavior but the other tests behave in the expected fashion.

        I propose to exclude this case from the test since analyzing why exactly it quits immediately on Windows could be done but is not worth the effort.
