If I read that patch right, it ignores (and does not even reraise) SystemExit (unchanged), but other Exceptions currently block the dump (and your patch causes them to still dump).  

(1)  Why is SystemExit ignored?

(2)  There should be tests to show that there was a dump after, say, a MyError.

(3)  You can use a single try ... except ... finally statement instead of two try statements.
