 blocks run.
 I'm not sure why they chose to do this, but it does look intentional. My
 only guess so far is that they wanted to allow developers the
 opportunity to inspect the program's state with a debugger before any of
 the finally blocks ran.

+The .Net behavior seems dubious when compared against the description 
+of exception propagation in C# language def section 8.10. The mono 
+behavior seems closer to the spec, which is that finally staements 
+are run immediately after the try, and before progagating the 
+.Net seems to be eagerly inferring that the exception will not be 
+handled, and saying an unhandled  exception has been received before 
+actually progagating it. Not correct, IMHO.
