Done. It's Bug 3169. Out of interest, what do you need to test? I've
written a little non-ACE program and verified that a unhandled exception
filter is called with /EHsc. I've also recompiled ACE with
ACE_DISABLE_WIN32_ERROR_WINDOWS, introduced an access violation to one
of the regressions tests and verified that it don't show the error
window when that option is set. Is there anything else I can do to help?

It's in as Bug 3170
