I checked in a one-liner to corlib.build so that it excludes
System.Exception from the cmp and res builds. Seems like another one of
our core types that the MS runtime is not happy sharing a bed with :(

In this case, the TargetInvocationException thrown by NUnit's dynamic
invoke of Bucky's Test() method was not at all happy with the non-MS
derived NotImplementedException it threw. It returned the inner
exception to be null to an unsuspecting NUnit, which subsequently
dropped the test process with the rather unhelpful message: "Could not
run tests."

The fault was ours. My apologies for besmirching the good name of NUnit.
