[fpc-pascal] Halt() bypassed try..finally block

Is that correct behavior?  When calling Halt() somewhere inside a
try..finally block, it _doesn't_ execute the finally code.

In fpGUI I used Halt() to terminate the event loop and exit a
application. I then noticed that NO cleanup code gets executed after
that call. Not objects get freed via destructors etc...  Since I
noticed this, I implemented a more graceful termination process, but
Halt() is really harsh!  :-)
