I'm not sure what version of NUnit is being used. There have 
definitely been bugs in past releases of NUnit that caused an 
unhandled exception. Of course, the application under test
can also be the source of unhandled exceptions.

Currently, NUnit uses the <legacyUnhandledExceptionPolicy>
element so that unhandle exceptions don't cause it to terminate.
A dialog box is displayed in the GUI showing information about
the exception, including a guess as to what test caused it - it
has to be a guess, since we don't know what created the thread
that threw the exception.
