Sorry I didn't respond earlier, I was on vacation and was
actively trying to avoid getting sucked into work...

I don't expect my answer here will be very satisfying.

I implemented this a long time ago and don't remember all
the details. But regardless, if one case permits the crash
handler to be run twice for a single crash, that's one case
too many.

I started doing some analysis but have stopped for now
because Bjorn has already decided to accept it. If you
want me to provide some more detail just say so and I'll
spend a little more time on it tomorrow.
