     L76: debuggeeFailIfPresent "Internal exception:"

     Is the failure mode for this bug always a crash? If so, then
     the above check should work as long as we don't change the
     "Internal exception:" part of the output. If we do that then
     we'll have to update a number of tests... :-)

Thumbs up.
