It's probably caused by r14184, which was in response to http://bugs.freepascal.org/view.php?id=14958

The problem is probably that the lib's exit code is called both when the library is unloaded (in which case you don't want the process to terminate) and when the "library" terminates (either via an unhandled exception, or by calling halt). I can't say off-hand how to decouple them, but a patch would be welcome.
