When the debug CRT library is used, invalid parameter errors also throw an assertion, which is disabled in this example using _CrtSetReportMode.

I spoke to Martin about this yesterday, apparently a specific test in
the multiprocessing suite was triggering these dialogs (the test

that the children will obey the flag
