[mozcrash] "minidumpwriter exited with status 1" on Windows 8 xpcshell


(Testing :: Mozbase, defect, P3)

This started happening after we switched xpcshell to use mozcrash in bug 1316309. But it didn't turn the job orange because of how xpcshell (mis)handles error messages. Bug 1261197 fixes this error handling, and therefore got backed out because of this issue.

I haven't looked into this yet, but it happens when a test times out and we try to kill_and_get_minidump() the test process. (The test later gets run sequentially at the end of the run and passes there, so this isn't as bad as it sounds).

Here's a log:
