I think this happens when you hit Ctrl-C and the thread the exception is
delivered to is holding the GDI/USER syslevel. The ctrl-c handler provided
by the runtime attempts to open a message box and fails to re-enter the
lower syslevel which in turn triggers the CheckNotLock assertion. That
then throws another exception and we go into an infinite loop.

In other words I think we can ignore this as it only happens when you
press Ctrl-C, something common on Linux but very rare on Windows.
